1.00pm             Mtb & Foot Nav Session…… We plan to take you through some simple mtb skills before heading out to some of our local forestry trails.  Then it’s time to put some real navigation into practice….with some hands-on map-work….technical riding….some bush-bashing….all the good stuff…. When we’ve ‘nailed it all’ we can ride back to refresh for dinner.

You will have 3 hours to navigate your way via, mtb and foot…..finding CP’s or answering questions to complete the ‘event’.  This is only a training & skills session, but we will make it as realistic as possible for you….so you will be able to have the skills, fitness and confidence to tackle the Wild Women Adventure Race in July.
