We have put together a series of downloads to help you start or develop your endurance riding knowledge.
Endurance Terms Glossary
We have created a downloadable sheet of Endurance specific terms that you might come across at a ride.
We have tried to keep the explanation reasonably brief but in the case of Endurance GB rules more detailed explanations can be found in your members handbook or the main Endurance GB website.
If you think there is a word or phrase we have omitted please do let us know and we will be happy to add it in.
Glossary of Endurance Terms
Information to help you prepare for and take part in your first Pleasure Ride including what to wear and what happens on the day. There are two types of Pleasure Rides (PR) those which are run by the local EGB Group and those which take place alongside a National EGB ride. The key difference is that there is no vetting process at the Group ride and at a National EGB ride PR riders will complete a simply vetting procedure.
Please find below some helpful hints and information covering the types of things you might want to know before, during and after the ride to help you enjoy your ride even more.
