Burung Hantu Night Mtb Jamboree 2010

Dear members and guests of M2BH,


We would like to inform you of an exciting event that is just round the corner. A night mountain bike event organised by our sister cycling club, the Environment Cycling Club (ECC)

Date: 30th Oct (Saturday)

Time: 8.30 pm flag off

Venue: Dataran Ayer Keroh

Distance: 45km XC trails with 5 check points (Water and bananas will be provided)

Registration fee: RM50.00

Lots of lucky draw prizes to be won when you complete the whole trail.

You might be curious of what is the difference between day and night mountain biking. Well, for starters, it is much cooler! You will need a set of good front bicycle lights and red rear blinking lights as the trails will be dark when you cycle through oil palm, rubber estates and single tracks in the jungle. Frightening? Nah, not when you have a few hundred other riders cycling along. Plus, the absence of daylight will heighten your other senses and that makes it a whole lot more enjoyable.

How to see the paper trails in the dark? The organisers will be setting up LED amber lights all along the dark trails which should be visible. Volunteer marshals will be present at road junctions to guide traffic.

Trails description, safety notice, registration form and other important information are available in their event blog
