After years of taking part in the excellent Scottish Mountain Bike Orienteering (SMBO) races, I have finally
been gently coerced into decided to run one of the events.
The beauty of these events is that, due to the fact that you decide upon your own route, they are suitable for all ages and abilities.
Whether you just fancy a short, easy pootle around some paths and tracks you may never have explored before, or you want to push yourself to the very edge of your abilities at the exciting, highly competitive top end. You can ride as hard and as far as you want.
Also, route choice is more important than pure speed, so if you aren't the fastest rider, you can compete by making good route decisions!
