Hi there Retro Bike Riders !
Next round of the origin of Adventure Racing, the Scottish Mountain Bike Orienteering League is on 10th June 2012 at Yarrow Valley ! Set to be a great event with a fantastic Race Area for you to take on the challenge!
Mountain Bike Orienteering (MBO) are fun off road event were YOU choose the course! There are 30 electronic checkpoints scattered across a 60 to 100 square kilometre playing area. The winner is the person who collects the most points in a set time (normally 3 or 4 hours)
I've just done Ten Under the Ben and that was a tough day, saw some of your guys there! Hopefully things will be a little cooler for Yarrow ! But it will still be as much of a test of endurance for those who want to go flat out, or a relaxed adventure and introduction to the sport for those considering giving it a go for the first time!
Entries for Soloists, Pairs, and the Generation category which gives you the chance to race this adventure with your mountain biking younger selves!
Solo’s – £15
Teams – £25
Generations – £15
Juniors – £10
I dont know of any other events this good that are this affordable!
