Four x 3 hour Mountain Bike orienteering/navigational events in the Peak District National ParkWelcome to the 19th annual edition of our popular and well established Trailquest/MTB orienteering series. Taking place in the superb surroundings of the Peak District National Park with its brilliant network of bridleways, green lanes and quiet country lanes plus stunning scenery it is a great way to keep you fit and active throughout the winter months.Trailquest/MBO’s are suitable for all ages and abilities so long as you (a) can competently ride a mountain bike off-road and (b) know the basics of reading an OS map. The map reading and route planning will challenge your mental resolve whilst the hills and dales of the Peak District will undoubtedly test your physical fitness – be mindful however on these events that the fittest/fastest rider is not always the winner!Entries can either be as a pair or solo. All events are held from undercover venues meaning whatever the weather throws at you post-event you can re-heat and re-hydrate and sit back and chat the ifs and buts with fellow competitors over a cup of tea and a biscuit or two. Events can be entered individually, alternatively if you decide to enter the whole series your best three results will count towards series overall. Event timing is by SPORTident systems. Full colour over-printed OS map sections are provided.Within the time allowed (3 hours), visit controls and collect as many points as possible – route planning is as important as fitness. Lateness penalties as per standard BMBO rules. Control sites will be identified by bright coloured tape on an obvious feature to which a SPORTident box will be attached. “Dib” in the SPORTident box at the Start, Finish, all controls visited and the download box at the end. You must use a SPORTident dibber to take part in these events. You may use your own dibber if you have one (please fill in its number on the entry form). If you don’t have your own dibber we will rent you one automatically. Teams please note: both members must carry and use a dibber.
