Mountain Bike Orienteering, Stub Stewart State Park
Sun June 1
Stub Stewart, a mt. bike friendly state park abut 45 minutes from Portland in the Coast Range, has a well developed network of bike trails, perfect for mt. bike-O. We'll have beginner and more advanced courses available, so come out and give it a try even if you are new to this type of orienteering.
- Registration 10:30 am - 12:45 pm
- Beginner Clinics 11:00 am - 1:00 pm as needed
- Course starts 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

(All teams must check out through the course finish gate before leaving the park, even if the team does not finish the course or returns after the course closes.)
We'll have 2 courses: easier (about 4 Km, 8-10 controls) and harder (about 7 Km, 10-12 controls). Participants are welcome to try one or both.

Our 2014 mountain bike orienteering event had a nice turnout under cool weather, changing to sunny. Hats off to long course winner Tim Goodall, who whomped the field in his first ever orienteering competition. We hope to see you all next year. Thanks to Sue Grandjean and Abra Mcnair, USA national mountain bike orienteering team members, for putting on a great event!
