Cool Mountain Bike Challenge
A very popular, annual, fully marked out, off road mountain bike ride through quiet, gloriously Autumnal trails in north west Hampshire.
There's a choice of distance: the Medium family friendly 30km, where Under 16s ride for free with entered adults, and the Long 55km which is a big favourite with groups of friends. Both go through the 'Woods Section' where you are guaranteed lots of smiles on the swoopy singletrack. You can decide during your ride exactly which route you want to follow, and then let us know at the end.
When you return you'll collect your finisher's medals and may then relax and enjoy some on site food and drink to round off your day.
ONLINE ENTRY IS OPEN NOW www.tickettailor.com/events/gorrickmbc/507593/ if you definitely want to ride, we intend to take entries on the day of the event if we can, but this will depend on the current regulations at the time.
All entered riders will receive a pre-event email in the week preceding the event and a Route Guide with distances and elevation profiles will also be published on the Gorrick website.
On the day the course will be clearly marked out and you will also receive a detailed route map which will have HQ contact phone numbers on it should you need any assistance from our mobile marshals.
ONLINE PRE-ENTRY £30 (Under 16s can ride FREE with you) Over 65s £25
