Weekend mountain bike challenge to take place in Yorkshire Dales

A weekend of mountain biking, camping and exploring will take place in the Yorkshire Dales next month.

The OMM BIKE challenge will be held on September 9 and 10.

The challenge will see more than 30 checkpoints of different values spread out around the trails and paths.

Teams or individuals have to find as many as they can in their allotted time using the OMM BIKE map.

The riders that collects the most points over Saturday and Sunday are the winners.

The competition area is based at Hawes but includes nine other dales.

Event coordinator Emma Gill said: “The checkpoints are connected by an excellent network of bridleways and some private but permissive estate tracks as well as public footpaths.

“You may also see the largest natural lake in Yorkshire and the shortest river.

“You are guaranteed 2 cracking days of biking so we hope to see you there.”

All OMM events are run on a not for profit basis with the main aim is to get people into the great outdoors.
