Lunar Enduro returns

This Saturday, Oct. 23, the Squamish Off Road Cycling Association is bringing back the Bill Landry Loonar Enduro, a six-hour event where riders see how many laps they can complete between 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. - with the last two hours taking place in the dark, so good quality lights and/or headlamps are mandatory.

You can race as a team of two or solo, with categories for juniors, open men and women, and veterans.

The theme of the race is cartoon characters, and the prize for best costume is a Kona Cruiser from Nesters Market.
