Rd Three Trailquest

 Round 3 of Dromara Cycling Club's Winter Trail Quests takes place on Tuesday 27 December 2011 from event headquarters at Brennan's Garage on the Newcastle Road near Seaforde.

These mountain biking orienteering events are great fun for all abilities. You can enter solo or as a team of up to 3 adults. There are two events to chose from, the main 3.5 hour event and the 2 hour one for those who just want to try out the sport and for families. One adult can have a team of 1 or 2 youth riders (age 14 or over).

The task
At your start time you are handed a map and a clue sheet. Your team has to work together to ride out to find the markers, note down the clue and move onto the next one. There is no set order of the collection. Different markers have different points value. You need to collect as many markers as possible and return to base within the time allocated. If you return late you lose points. The later you are the more points you will lose.

These are leisure based events. There will be leisure insurance available on the day. Helmets must be worn and riders are asked to be self-sufficient with regards to carrying a pump, spare tubes, multi-tool. An emergency number will be printed onto the maps.

Good cause
Dromara CC have been using these popular events to help raise funds for the club's chosen charity, the Northern Ireland Cancer fund for children and the final round it usually based from the charity's main centre at Shimna Valley.
