The 18th Dark & White Winter Trailquest/MBO Series
Welcome to the 18th 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.
**New for 2016/2017
Start times for this series will be between 8.30 & 9.30am; there will also be a prize giving at 1.00pm after each individual event as well as trophies for series class winners and runners up.
Waterproof maps to be provided on all events.
Event Location: Longstone, Bakewell, DE45 1NY
