MTBO North Fremantle

richardbikeenewswebSunday 11th March 2018

Tom Perrott Reserve, McCabe St, Mosman Park

The first event of the mountain bike orienteering season is a novelty bike (or walk/run) ramble in North Fremantle and Mosman Park. Participants will complete a clue answer sheet, based on information obtained by visiting the control points identified on the map, so make sure to bring a pen along. This event is less a race, more an adventure to find points of interest. A great way to get into bike based navigation and tune up your skills for future MTBO events. For younger riders there will be a special kids course available.

Registration from 9am
Start Time: 9.30am MASS START
Courses Close: 12 noon
Courses: Kids, Short, Medium, Long

Don't forget to bring sunscreen, your bike and mapboard (if you have one), a pen to write your answers and your helmet.
Remember: No helmet, no start.

As usual, there'll be friendly people on hand to assist you with planning and registration if you need it and newcomers are welcome.
