Starting at sunset, the Red Funnel Night Rider MTB Challenge is a non-timed, checkpoint adventure.
- EARLY BIRD ENTRY FEES FROM JUST £10
- CHOOSE MOUNTAIN BIKE DISTANCES OF 5km, 10km, 20km, 35km or 50km
With a range of distances from 5km to 50km the event has something for all abilities, and with friendly checkpoints and a party atmosphere at the finish line, this night time ride will provide all participants with a great evening's entertainment.
The Night Rider forms a part of The Trail Festival, held at the Isle of Wight Mountain Bike Centre on Shorwells' Cheverton Farm, Isle of Wight.
Equipped with a basic map and stamp card, participants will navigate their way from checkpoint to checkpoint, collecting stamps as they go. Each distance has a required amount of stamps to be collected, before participants make their way back to the final checkpoint and the finish line.
The off-road courses cover chalk trails, farm tracks and bridleways, with some small sections of open grassland. Every checkpoint is on a main track to make it easy to spot. The terrain around the venue is quite hilly, although we have designed the courses where possible to minimise the amount of hills involved and as such are accessible to all levels of fitness.
