The much loved Cool MTB Challenge, organised by our experienced, friendly team is a timed, choice of distance, fully supported, marked route MTB event run along quiet lanes, tracks, bridleways and swoopy woodland singletrack in Hampshire and Wiltshire.

You can choose to ride the Long 45-55 or the Medium 30-35km route.  This year it will be run to the current Government guidelines, and will be rigorously risk assessed with social distancing to the fore.

This longstanding, very popular, sociable event offers something for everyone: some riders like to push themselves, whilst others just enjoy riding along and enjoying the stunning scenery. All riders receive a finisher's medal and the sublime on site catering available will include hot & cold drinks and snacks.

If you enter, your children under 16 may ride with you for FREE and do not need to be entered separately, plus there's discounted entry for older riders.
Entry fee guarantee: should the event have to be cancelled for any reason, please be assured that you would receive a prompt and full refund of your entry fee. However at this time, the Club cannot give refunds or transfers of entry, if you enter then decide that you cannot now attend the event.

All entered riders will receive a pre-event information email in the week leading up to the event, which will detail exactly what to expect and how to get the most out of the event. The confirmed routes and profiles will be posted just prior to the event to allow for any issues on
