Masters Endurables doing Two laps of Taupo

The focus for many masters riders this time of year is training and preparing for Taupo, K2 or other iconic events. With BM Legend Colin Anderson looking to conquer an amazing 8 laps of Taupo this year, there are other local masters riders (men and women) who call themselves the Endurables looking to achieve their first two laps this year. Jennette Flipp inspired the 320k team Endurables challenge for a very lovely lady cyclist we lost. Watch out for the Endurables you might see out and about on our roads or at a local coffee shop.
