Gorrick Hot MTB Challenge - Sun 20 May

by Jane Lucas, 02 May 18.

Coming up next month is our Hot MTB Challenge on Sunday 20 May, which has its rider HQ based at Vernham Dean Pavilion, Vernham Dean, Hants SP11 0JY. Organised by our experienced, friendly team, it's a timed, choice of distance, fully supported, marked route mtb event run along quiet lanes, tracks, bridleways and woods singletrack in Hampshire and Wiltshire.

We've been organising our MTB Challenges for some years and they've evolved into very popular, sociable events that offer something for everyone. Some riders like to push themselves, others like to ride with their family (U16s ride for FREE) whilst others just enjoy riding through the stunning scenery with their friends. All riders receive a finisher's medal and the sublime on site catering available includes hot & cold drinks and homemade cakes plus beer and a bbq. Full event details are here

Online pre-entry is open HERE (children under 16 ride FREE with an adult) and will close late on Wednesday 16 May or you can just turn up and enter on the day from 8.30am.
