Mountain Bike Navigation Events

MTB Nav Events or MBOs are suitable for all abilities and ages from 12 – 112, as you can competently ride a mountain bike off-road and  know the basics of reading an OS map you will have a great time. The map reading and route planning will challenge your mental resolve whilst the hills and valleys will undoubtedly test your physical fitness – be mindful however on these events that the fittest/fastest rider is not always the winner. They are run all over the UK but if you like to ride in South Wales, Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacons), Black Mountains, Wye Valley & the Forest of Dean you have come to the right place.

Full details regarding event rules, membership etc can be found on the BMBO Website HERE
