Mountain Bike Orienteering is a fun off road event where YOU choose the course!
All ages and abilities can compete with the aim of visiting as many high value checkpoints as possible in the 3 hour time limit and organised by Scotland’s largest MBO club Scottish Mountain Bike Orienteering.
This year we are offering a 3 hour challenge around the Tweed Valley!
The event will take place in and around the Tweed Valley and in the vicinity of Peebles.
Start any time between 10 and 11am. Feel free to come down early from 9am to see the map of the area and ask any questions. As this is NOT a mass start you can set off earlier if you want
There are 30 Controls shown on the map provided and the aim to go to as many as possible in any order. Each Control Point will have a Sport Ident ‘Dibber’ Punch. The location of these will be obvious when you are near them but just in case there is also descriptions of each checkpoint given to you at the start. Marker tape may be used to highlight the Control Point if necessary. We will endeavour to balance the control location and values in such a way that Generation Teams (Adult and Child pairs) can get a reasonable score without too many hills and thus make the Adult Solos and Pairs really work to get those extra points.
Scores will be displayed as soon as they have been calculated and checked.
Final Results will be posted on our website www.smbo.org.uk.
