MTBO is biking and navigation usually along trail and track networks, but can go over areas in-between. The areas you can bike are clearly marked on the legend on the map. This is great training for adventure race events (on a smaller scale) where you have a biking and navigation component. Map-reading whilst biking, can often be challenging especially when you go at speed, so do take time to read the map. Many MTB orienteers have mapboards mounted on their handle bars to make it easy to read the map and orientate the map as you pedal. If you want to know where to get these, send us a message, as one of our member make them, and can possibly bring some to the event if you order in advance.

Please pre-register by Wed 21th Aug to ensure there are enough maps
