IMPORTANT: To the best of our knowledge the details provided are accurate at the time of listing. However, as with any outdoor event of this type, there can always be unforeseen circumstances that will lead to changes or cancellations. For all demo days, please check with the organiser directly to confirm the event is going ahead, timing, location, bike availability and any other additional detail.
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 you to the limits in every area of your mountain biking skills and fitness….and its all for local charity!
We’ve put together two great routes - 25km and 50km - for you to enjoy, most of which is all natural singletrack with a mix of fireroad and some tarmac at the start (helps sort out the line-up before hitting the singletrack) and finish. There’s a natural split on the 50km route at 25km for those who are looking for something a little less daunting, but please note that there will be a cut-off time for those who register for the 50km and do not reach the split by the cut-off 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 1500m 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!
£20.00 per rider registered 1st January 2011 to 28th February 2011
