If you like a good, challenging bike ride, then Bicycle Orienteering with Multi Terrain Bicycle Orienteering (MTBO) is the place to do just that.

Also known as 'Bike-O' and 'Come and Try It', this activity will be held in the Scribbly Gums Conservation Area, and is perfect for beginners or as a family outing. Specially marked out tracks and trails on the map will help you throughout this engaging activity, and all you need is a helmet, a bike and a bottle of water. Club members will assist you throughout the orienteering event, so you can be sure that you won't lose your way. You can arrive anytime between 8:30am and 10am, and all you need to pay is $5 on the day. And as an added bonus, you will be treated to a free sausage sizzle and drink on the day as well.

Please register via the website if you are planning to attend on the day (generally, extra details for the day will be sent to your email upon registration). This is a great event to bring your family and friends along to as well, so don't forget to take them along.

The Multi Terrain Bicycle Orienteering is affiliated with Orienteering QLD and Orienteering Australia, and hold annual events for more experienced riders and also less competitive activities as well. Usually, the Multi Terrain Bicycle Orienteering specialise in cross country cycling and various competitions. These include 'line' courses, which are laid out in bush sites; 'scatter' courses, which are similar to line courses; 'score' courses, where riders get points during the bike ride; 'loop' courses, which are a form of line courses set out in a loop; and 'enduro' events, which last longer than all the other events and take the form of a score course.

However, for activities such as Bicycle Orienteering, they are more than glad to help you learn the thrills of bike riding. If you or even your friends and family really enjoy the Bicycle Orienteering activity, then it is a good idea to become members of Multi Terrain Bicycle Orienteering. There are several options to choose from, including introductory and family, so please visit the website to download a membership form.

During the Bicycle Orienteering, it's not a bad idea to check out what the Scribbly Gums Conservation Area has to offer along the way. Although not your ordinary 'park' as such, it does offer a series of trails and the chance to see some wild birds, koalas and of course, the scribbly gums from which the conservation area derives its name.

So grab your friends or family and head to the Bicycle Orienteering for a fun bike ride (it's also a good idea if you want to keep in shape to head to this event as well). For more information, please email or phone 0418 871 193.
