Summer 75 MTBO at the You Yangs

Monday, 8 February 2016

 

The second of this year's four Summer 75 Series events is on this Saturday, February 13th, at the You Yangs Regional Park (Kurrajong picnic ground).

The format is a 75 minute score event with 20 controls marked on the map. Riders visit as many as they can and return to the finish before the 75 minutes is up. You choose which route and which controls you want to visit. You can ride fast or just tootle along enjoying the trails.

The You Yangs is a very popular mountain bike park with a fantastic network of single tracks and management trails giving riders plenty of choice, according to their ability.

Riders carry a special eCard (supplied with entry) that records their time and each of the controls visited and then provides instant results as they finish.

Entry fees are $10 for Orienteering Victoria members ($5 Juniors), $15 for non members ($8 Juniors). Register and get set up before 5.45 pm on the day. Starts are from 6pm. Loan mapboards available.

Enter from Branch Rd main entrance and proceed approx. 2 km to Kurrajong Picnic Ground. BBQ available after the event with sausages, cheese toasties and soft drinks available.

Organised by Bayside Kangaroos with Angus Robinson course setting and Anne Robinson, organiser.
