Brooks England Teaser for North London Dirt 2022

Brooks England is once again the official partner for London’s coolest gravel event: North London Dirt 2022. Following a 115km (70 mile) all-surface course, NLD offers riders a self-supported gravel adventure unlike any other, covering everything from quiet lanes and dirt paths to tight wooded singletrack. Beyond providing participants with a single-day urban, suburban, and rural escape from the city, the event also brings a diverse gravel community together to raise money for the St. Mary’s Centre—a London community hub that hosts, among other things, a migrant centre, food bank and homeless shelter. The event starts with a warm cup of Workshop Coffee and ends with a cold pint from Magic Rock Brewing.

Para-cyclist Josie Fouts isn’t afraid of the impossible. In a few short years, Fouts went from casual commuter to elite para-cyclist. Now she’s on a mission to bring para-mountain biking to the Paralympics and inspire others with her story. Head on over to our parent company, The Pro’s Closet’s Magazine to read Bruce’s excellent reporting on how Fouts overcame the absence of her hand on the bike. This is a really moving story and I hope you all read it!
