Orienteering on mountain bikes... looks like it could be a lot of fun :)

You get given a map with the check points and a time limit... 2 or 3 hours and off you go.

More details.... http://www.gorrick.com/trailtrax/index.php

Added bonuses are the start / finish points are pubs with beer and food :thumbup: and start times are a reasonable 10:00 to 11:00 am :thumbup: :thumbup:

Given that I spend 50% of any ride a bit unsure of where I am and the other 50% of the ride just lost I really doubt I'll trouble the leaders but it's the taking part that counts :wtf:

Anyone else ???

Sounds good! We should take the Top Gear approach and just go as the crow flies at full speed :D

Or another technique... follow the group that looks the most promising, make as if you are actually planning your route, and steal the win off them on the home straight. :twisted:

Id be up for that if i could get a lift there.

Well.... first one is on the 6th of April and about 30 mins from Swinley. So assuming that Swinley has dried out a bit by April :lolno: there's the option to do the 2hr TrailTrax.... bit of lunch at the start/finish pub and then over to Swinley for a bit of blue trail fun?

Second one is 18th of May and a bit further west but right on the edge of the South Downs so options there?

For me it's pretty weather dependent.... lost in the wood on a nice day, bit out fun :) Lost in the wood in the rain, not so much fun :eh:

Yeah.. definately looks pretty good.. sounds like a good plan, weather dependant.

Karrabean.. where abouts are you? assuming I don't convince some poor bastard to buy my car in the meantime, can fit 3 + bikes pretty easily, so would be happy to give you a lift for a petrol contribution..

PS: bugeye, we all know you can use your superpowers to control the weather.. nice sunny day, gentle breeze please!

Just a quick heads up for anyone following....

I can't make this now as my wife has to work so I'm on childcare duties in the afternoon :(

I think the next one clashes with MSG?

I'll post up nearer the time for the third one to see if there are any takers.
