MTBO info.
Starts between 10:00am and 10:45am.
These are line courses where you need to visit each control in numeric order for a fixed course. The controls have SI units and we will provide each rider with an SI stick to record each control. You will receive a printout at the finish, showing the time for each leg of the course.
You will be able to compare legs with other competitors on the web results. This format, which is the normal foot orienteering method, allows for more interesting route choice options and longer courses in a compact area.
The published distances are the straight line distances between controls on the course, so your riding distance is likely to be 25% longer than the line distance. Expect actual ride distance of about 18km for the long course and 10km for the short course.
Riders may use roads, footpaths, mapped trails and clear ground (mapped in solid yellow). Some rotating map boards are available for hire at $5 so please pre-order if needed. Most tracks are sealed, so any type of bike will do for this event although MTB preferred. Normal road rules apply.

SAFETY: Please make sure to observe all event rules and traffic rules when competing. Please take particular care when crossing roads. Competitors should carry their own water for this event.
