Enduro Magazine is a locally-produced mountain bike publication based in Melbourne, Australia. The magazine was borne out of the boom of 24 racing in Australia and was originally produced for the Mont 24 hour in 2004. Since that time, Enduro has evolved into a quarterly print magazine and is now jam-packed with riding stories, race reports, product reviews, interviews, training advice, tech features and general musings.
Whilst the focus of the magazine has always been on the endurance racing culture, as with our everyday lives (you can’t do 8 hour days every day of the week…), we like to spice things up. Fast-forward almost a decade, and you’ll see that we cover trail-riding, cross-country, gravity enduro, cycle-touring and the odd cyclocross event too.
Although we like our rides long, we prefer our words short. Enduro coincidentally comes from the Aussie slang term for ‘Endurance’, and in our backyard that means 50km or 100km marathons and 6/12/24 hour racing. Since our humble beginnings though, the word ‘Enduro’ has grown to become much more. Whether it’s uphill or downhill, pedal-powered or lift-assisted, over a single day or across multi-stages, cross-country marathon or gravity-fed downhill; we’re all about it.
Run by riders, for riders, Enduro Magazine’s editorial and photographic team are as diverse as its readership: we are the hairy and shaved legged, we are the beer drinkers and protein-shake-consumers, we are the racers and weekend-warriors, we are the whippets and cruisers, we wear the suits and the aprons covered in grease; we’re just like you and we love to ride.
