Whats happening?

BucksMTB regularly organizes youth rides and family ride days, but other than a partnered event in 2011 we have never held a specific large scale organised public family event....until now that is!

On Sunday 20th October 2013, we are holding our first specific Family Fun Day mountain bike event between 10:00 and 16:00 at Wendover Woods in the Chiltern Hills which is open to the whole family for free of charge.

This event is going to be a fun day for the whole family taking in orienteering in the picturesque Chiltern Hills, but combined with family team building, group ride games, group challenges, individual challenges and much more....all finished off with a BBQ to end the day. The main event is based on the orienteering challenge, aiming to get to as many checkpoints as possible within a given time period, following this will be a selection of different tasks and challenges. The event outline means that all partaking families have a chance at winning, with better points being on offer on some tasks instead of purely just based on visiting checkpoints. The day will be a great day out for the whole family bringing in great family team work, tactics, riding challenges, but also to to offer a challenge for each individual in the family and include a way to learn new biking skills all mixed in with some cunning and tactical team work.

Qualified BucksMTB trail leaders will also be providing led rides throughout Wendover Woods during the event as well as us having a ShoreTrax course setup for those that fancy having a go at something a little different too.

The event will be professionally run and organised, supported by the CTC, CycleChilterns, The Forestry Commission and local bike shops and supporting sponsors. The event will offer different categories for mixed family groups and different ages.

This event will be fairly similar to our previous Family Adventure Challenge that we held in partnership with XNRG back in 2011 - read more
