Ever wondered what the Gorrick team do over the Summer when their long established and popular XC and Enduro events finish for a while? Well, for many years they have been running their TrailTrax mtbo events. Sponsored by Mountain Trax of Wokingham, this year there will be 4 events (which can be enjoyed singly or as part of the Series) starting on Sunday 19 April and finishing in September. These are smaller scale, but still slickly organised events with well chosen pubs as their Event HQs.
TrailTrax events are fun for beginners as well as challenging for experienced cyclists. You can ride them as a Solo, Pair, Family or Group of riders. You are given a map with the 20 checkpoints marked on it and a checkpoint description sheet with clues, then you plan your route so that you can gather as many points as possible within your 2 or 3 hours riding time. Whatever you choose to do, you get to enjoy some excellent off road cycling in new areas on a Sunday morning, and then finish for food, drink, socialising and the prize giving in a great pub.
