Queensland Mountain Bike Orienteering State Series.
Please check the Qld MTBO website for more details closer to the event.

MTB Orienteering is the sport of cross country cycling, combining riding and navigation. Using specially produced maps, riders navigate their way along roads, tracks and trails to control markers (checkpoints) placed at specific locations. Interpreting the map to decide which is the best way from one control to the next, introduces some challenge, so that it's not all about speed. Riders are timed electronically with the rider locating their controls correctly in the shortest time declared the winner.

Course lengths vary from 5km to over 40km, in terrain from flat coastal pine plantations to undulating native bush forests. Courses are available to suit riders of all abilities, from social to competitive. There are classes for males, females and pairs/groups, covering ages from 10 to over 70 years. MTBO events are a low-key and fun competition and are open to anyone to compete.
