Exeter, England, United Kingdom
We are a group of Orienteers who also enjoy Mountain Biking and have put together this club to provide the area access to the crossover sport of Mountain Bike Orienteering (MTB Nav)
MTB Nav events require riders, either solo or pairs to visit as many of the available control points on a map within the allowed time. 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 can give anyone a buzz, whatever their ability level.
We put on a number of events throughout the year in areas such as the Otter Valley, Blackdown Hills, Quantock Hills, Dartmoor and Exmoor.
