The last of the short Leinster series of MTBO events is this Sunday at Carrick Mountain, Glenealy, Co. Wicklow. Start times 11.00 to 12.00. There will be two courses of about 10km/350m climb and 13km/450m.
Travel directions as for the Leinster Championships in April but parking may not be in exactly the same place: Leave the N11/M11 at Exit 16 and travel to Rathnew, then to Glenealy. Turn right in Glenealy village and sharp left after about 100m at the GAA grounds. Please drive slowly up the minor road to the competition area and respect the residents.
The map will be A3, 1:10000 scale, as was used for LOC2016. Plastic bags will be available for maps if you need one. Sportident timing will be used. Pre-entry is not required, nor is club membership so if you know anyone who wants to try MTBO, encourage them to come along. It\'s a big area and great for MTBO and you could clearly see Wales from the upper parts of the mountain yesterday!
Safety: You must wear a helmet and you must stay with your bike at all times. Courses will close at 2 pm. There are a lot of MTB tracks in the area and not all of them may be marked. Please also be aware that walkers, horses, and (unfortunately) some scramblers and quad bikes also use the area. There may also be some non-orienteering mountain bikers.
