The Kendal Mint Feed stations
This year we doubled the amount of fuel available to riders on the feed-stations with a huge selection of KMC NRG BARs, Natural Energy Bars, Energy Gels and Lots of KMC ISO MIX Isotonic drink mix - a welcome sight for the riders considering the forecast was rain and cloud.
