Come and try MTBO - Mountain Bike Orienteering

Local Orienteering club the WaggaRoos will be adding an MTBO course to one of their regular foot orienteering events in July and invite all MTB enthusiasts to come and have a go. It will be held at Pomingalarna Reserve on Sunday 15th July on trails everyone is familiar with and the course will be suitable for all levels of riders. 

What is MTBO?: MTBO is the sport of cross country cycling which combines riding and navigation. Using a map provided, participants navigate their way to marked checkpoints by riding along roads, tracks and trails. Interpreting the map to decide which is the best way to go from one checkpoint to the next introduces the challenge, so it is not always about who can ride the fastest. Riders are timed electronically, with the rider who locates all of the checkpoints in the fastest time declared the winner.

When: Sunday 15th July
Where: Eastern entrance (Golf Club side) of Pomingalarna Reserve
Time: Start anytime between 10am and 11:30am
Distance: A 10-12km course, however you choose your own route from checkpoint to checkpoint
Cost: $7 per person or $14 for a family + $2 SI stick hire (electronic timing)
What to Bring: A bike in good working order and suitable for riding at Pomi, an Australian Standards Helmet, water
