Gorrick

Gorrick

Gorrick was formed in 1991 by a group of mountain bike enthusiasts from a local off-road motorcycle club. Our first event was in November 1992 at Crowthorne Wood and we've been going strong ever since. Our original classic races soon evolved into a very popular Spring Series and later on challenging long distance Enduros and TrailTrax cycle orienteering events. Our enthusiastic team will always make sure that you have a consistently first rate, good value riding experience.

We will also have the benefit of the massive arena area at Deepcut Green, with plenty of space for parking and the full arena. This area also gives us ample opportunity to spread riders out before arriving at the delightful flowing single track and twisty drops and climbs which always richly reward the effort of any climb with a scintillating decent. You can expect a full Enduro length lap similar to Are You Tough Enough which can be ridden regardless of the weather conditions.
