Bottle Lake will become a hive of activity, first on Sunday 8th of March, then again on Sunday 9th of August. These 2 events cater for everyone from Elite riders to beginners. Young and Old from 7-17 year in the Children's categories and adults being female only. We have a special category being Mum's & Son's and Mum's & Daughter's.
7 & 8 year olds will only race the shorter routes, while 9-years and up will race the longer route - see Categories.
Competitors in each category will be rewarded with 1st, 2nd and 3rd Placings, plus we'll have Spot Prizes.
The 2 dates will be run as separate events, you don’t have to do both events although we’re sure once you’ve done one, you’ll be back for the next one.

Where Mums are doing the Teams with the children, they start in the age group of the child. All mums will do the first lap, as this gives the kids the chance to take all the glory crossing the Finish Line.
Late Entries will be taken on Race Day if space is available, a $10 late Entry Fee will apply.
The race will be held in Bottle Lake Forest Park and will take in some of the single tracks and Avenues allowing plenty of areas for passing and give the younger ones the experience of Mountain Biking in a safe environment. Markings will be red arrows on cones and Pink GloCote on the trail.
