Overview

With the choice of a three or six hour event, on bike or on foot, this is the MTBNav that started it all in 2009 and is the fourth to be held. It is a Team Rogaine for two to five people where participants devise their own route to visit as many controls on the map and thus collect as many points as possible in the time available. Of all the MTBNavs, this one is the most suitable for youngsters riding with their parents and for less experienced riders, as much of the riding is on hard surfaces on paths and roads. Being a suburban area, there are many opportunities to visit a café along the way. If a Team finds the riding or walking too tiring it is just a matter of staying in the flatter areas, or returning to the assembly area at any time.

flyerCourse area is huge, being the eastern shore of Hobart from Government Hills at Geilston Bay in the north, to the tip of Tranmere in the south, and to Stringy Bark Gully in the east. Pilchers Hill, the Meehan Range, Knopwood Hill, Mornington Hill, Gordons Hill, Rosny Hill and Natone Hill are all included. A first for 2012 is that the Domain too is part of the course, meaning participants can enjoy a ride or walk over the Tasman Bridge. One aim of the event is to have participants visit as many tracks in bush reserves as feasible. Riders may only ride on formed roads, tracks and paths, whilst walkers can go wherever access is legitimate.
