The event is a Mountain Bike Navigation Event …
People can enter either the Long Score (3.5 Hours) or Short Score (2 Hours) categories. They can enter as a Solo, Pair, Team (of up to 4 people) or a Family Group.
Participants will be given a waterproof 1:25,000 map, with all the checkpoints on. Each checkpoint is worth a different amount, dependent on distance and terrain. They then have either 3.5 hours, or 2 hours (dependent on which category they have entered), to visit as many checkpoints as possible in order to maximise their score. This format, gives riders the opportunity to choose how far they want to ride within the time limit, and they can choose their own routes between the checkpoints dependent on what sort of riding they want to do. We use SportIdent Electronic Timing (all included in the entry cost), which means results are very quick to process and participants can compare checkpoint choice, scores and times!
The Quantocks is a fantastic area, with some fabulous riding. The checkpoints have been placed in a good variety of locations, in order to give varied riding – from forest tracks right through to technical single-track ….
