The next round of the Bike-O 75 series will be at Silvan on Sunday 22 March in the morning.

Due to measures in place in response to Covid 19, there will be some changes to procedures.

  • Please follow the Australia-wide orienteering competition guidelines as posted on the Orienteering Victoria website, and do not take part if you are feeling unwell, have returned from overseas in the last 14 days, or have been told to self isolate
  • Wash your hands thoroughly before and after the event. Please BYO hand sanitizer for personal use
  • No catering provided by the organisers. Please BYO food and drinks
  • Registration – after payment, please come to the touch screens for data entry by our operators
  • There will be no splits prints or display of results but they will be posted online as soon as possible following the event
  • Sportident sticks for hire will be disinfected immediately before and after the event
  • Please practice social distancing whilst assembled before and after the competition

 

How do Bike-O 75 events work?
Riders start anytime between 10.30am and 10.45am and have up to 75 minutes to visit as many controls  on the supplied colour map as they can. You choose which ones to visit and which way to get there, then get back to the finish before your 75 minutes is up. Each control you visit scores you 20 points but for every minute that you’re late after the 75 minutes is up, you lose 10 points. You get your map when you enter, so you’ll have plenty of time to plan your route. Don’t worry though, there’ll be lots of friendly helpers on the day to help you out and get the hang of the navigational side of things.

Get there early to register and get your map with plenty of planning time.

ENTER ON THE DAY up until 10.15am. Starts from 10.30am
Entry $10 for adults, $5 for juniors (under 21)
Loan mapboards available.

If you have a SportIdent timing stick, please bring it! Loan sticks available if you don’t have one.
