NAVIGATING AT SPEED

CHIPPS DOES A SPOT OF LOW LIGHT, AFTER-WORK ORIENTEERING IN THE EVER-INTERESTING PEAK DISTRICT.

EVENING ADVENTURES

In church halls and scout huts around the country, there are many different secret societies that meet. The membership is usually small, but dedicated, and the rest of the world doesn’t stop to notice when the posters go up, or the flags are raised. There are chess clubs, photography clubs and watercolour painting clubs. Every evening those seemingly empty village halls have the folding tables out and a dedicated group of people making their way down the side streets, following the zip-tied signs to their goal.

Mountain bike orienteering (MBO) is just such a clandestine society. Some readers might have heard of Trailquest events and wondered if they’re still around. The news is that, yes, there is a healthy series of events on summer evenings and winter weekends and there is a legion of devotees who are dedicated to the sport and who love the combination of navigation and bike riding against the clock.

Multi-purpose Scout huts litter the country, providing the stage for these secret clubs.
