Event Report: MTBO 1 Bike at Bibra

Saturday, 10 April 2021

On the day before the predicted deluge associated with Cyclone Seroja, 39 people competed in the first MTBO of the year starting next to Bibra Lake and heading off into the surrounding suburbs on the hunt for 40 controls. The event was a score event and competitors had two hours to visit as many of the 40 controls as possible.

The course was set by Ben Coetzer and Brian and Anne Austen helped place the 40 controls on the morning of the event. Most of the controls were accessible by road or hybrid bikes with a few that required a mountain bike to access. Overall, competitors were very happy with the course and it was really pleasing to see a few family groups giving orienteering a go.

It will still be great fun for those who prefer to navigate at a slower pace.
