Looking for a challenging pre-season mountain bike ride to test or kick-start your training? Ever finished a ride that your body said was twice the distance? Want to explore some great singletrack? Well then, welcome to the Wentwood Forest 50km Goshawk Challenge
Regarded by most as a tough ride, unforgiving and technically challenging in parts the Wentwood 50km Goshawk Challenge is an early season mountain bike XC endurance event that will test every area of your mountain biking training, skills, and fitness ...and its all for local charity.
We’ve put together a great 50km route for you to enjoy, mostly natural singletrack with a mix of fireroad and some tarmac - helps sort out the line-up before hitting the singletrack. There’s a natural split on the 50km route for 25km riders who are looking for something a little less daunting, but please note that there is also a cut-off time on the 50km route for riders who do not reach another split by a specified time.
For those unfamiliar with Wentwood Forest, it is the largest ancient forest in Wales with over 1000 acres of continuous broad leaf and coniferous woodland. Both the 50km and 25km routes make use of the varied terrain and are largely weatherproof. With over 1600m of climbing and none of it gained easily, the Wentwood 50km Goshawk Challenge is the perfect pre-season starter. But it’s not all uphill and there are some great downhill sections which will leave you smiling ear to ear!Cross Country
