Last time we ran MTBO at Queen Elizabeth Park no-one finished under 110 minutes. And Course 1 was tied at 118-10. Amazing after 2 hours independent riding and mapreading.
So the area is big enough heh heh. Stand by for detail of the courses which John Robertson is planning. Will include a 1-hour-ish course for women and vets and a something short and easy for those getting to grips with maps and bikes.
Right , course lengths. 14km and 7.5km, with other short-cuts available for those with small wheels and short legs. Off-track riding allowed on specified areas, shown by special colours on the map. Some real head-scratching route choices!
Course closes at 1pm. Suggest new MTBOers start before 10:30. Allow time for studying the special MTBO map legend too. Entry fee $15 pp less $5 orienteering clubbies, all halved for under 21.
