The aim of the event is to find and visit checkpoints marked on our 1:25,000 or 1:50,000 Maps:
- Participate as a team or go solo
- Fun for individuals, friends and families
- Bring your own bike or hire one
- Try it for fun or compete against your friends
- Take a guide with you to provide Map and Navigation instruction
Each rider accumulates a total score dependant on how many and which particular controls they visit. There is no set order for visiting the controls & riders have to decide the most efficient route on which to use their time and energy. The rider with the highest points total is the winner. As route choice, level of difficulty and duration of riding are all decisions for the rider, these events really suit everyone whatever your ability level.
Below is an example map of one of our maps used on a previous event. We tend to use 1:25,000 scale but may use 1:50,000 if we need greater coverage. The overlay of Check points and other detail is produced in OCAD which will be familiar to those who have tried Foot Orienteering.
