Finger crossed that the 15th of November will be as sunny and unseasonably warm as the start of November has been, but whatever that the weather has in store I hope you’ll be able to come along to the first Winter Series Treasure Hunt.
The last treasure hunt to start at the Malt Shovel was in February 2013, but I’ve made a few changes. The area is smaller, there are more off-road controls, and I’ve changed some of the clues based on feedback. I’ve ridden all of the off-road tracks, and most are ok but as you’d expect there are patches of soft ground. There will still be plenty of controls that are accessible from the lanes and tracks though if the weather makes riding conditions difficult.
As an added bonus, I’m going to do a spot “where’s by bike” prize… I’ve taken a photograph of my bike somewhere on the course and the rider who works out where it is (or is closest) will win something too. So no matter what your treasure hunt score is, there’s still an opportunity to win something!
