Export to calendar Back

Metrogaining is an event where you can participate as an individual or stay-together team and your aim is to get as many points as you can in the allocated time. The harder the checkpoint is to get, the more points it is worth, you will have a few minutes to plan your route prior to departure and it will be a mass start !! Cyclegaining is exactly the same except you ride your pushy instead of running!!!

Start : Riverway, Thuringowa

Maps will be issued 10-minutes before your start time, so make sure you turn up 15mins before the start to register and get ready to go !!

Cyclegaine - you will need your own Pushy (MTB is better, hybrid or roadie OK) with bell (and the normal stuff you carry like a pump and repair kit) and maybe consider making up a homemade map-board to make map reading easier (ice cream container lids and zippies work a treat - google map-board) - you will obviously need a helmet too.

* Parents / Adults are more than welcome to run and the kids ride, as long as you stick together :)
