UK Mountain Bike Orienteering in November and December.

By Stodge @stodgeblog

UK Mountain Bike Orienteering in November and December.After a long break through the summer months the MTBO season in the UK finishes with a flurry of events.

Firstly there is a MTBO on Tankersley, used earlier this year for the British foot orienteering relay championships, this Saturday, organised by World Masters Bronze medallist Killian Lomas. On Sunday nearby there is the second round of the ever popular Dark and white winter series of 3 hour score events.


Two weeks later sees a drive north to the wild forests of Gisburn for what promises to be a fantastic couple of hours of technical and hilly riding, organised by Alan Hartley and Pendle Forest Orienteers.


That evening the physical gives way to the social and clerical and the BMBO AGM.


Various score events all over the country carry us through November into December when there is a MTBO in Hurn forest down south and the famous Military Challenge between Xmas and New Year this time returning to its roots around Aldershot and Long Valley.

Full details of all events coming up are here http://www.bmbo.org.uk/calendar/

Watch out for another MBO score event which will be confirmed later this week on New Years Eve morning on Cannock Chase !
