Come to MTBO to find out why Langford mountain bike park is a popular mountain biking destination in Perth. Langford Park has lots of fast and flowy single track through the native bushland without those major hill climbs. These trails are a great place to learn and get started in mountain biking orienteering - so bring your friends and family!
Updated travel information: If you need to come through the city don't forget you may need more travel time as HBF Run for a Reason will close some key roads, including parts of the Mitchell Freeway southbound.
Short, Medium and Long courses will be available, plus we will be trialling a new course called “Choose your own Adventure” (AKA: a score event). Riders in this category can go out and collect as many orienteering controls as they like in whichever order they please. This category is for those riders who are beginners or who wish to have more flexibility in their Mountain Bike Orienteering Experience. For our beginner riders; you will be able to follow the sign posted network of beginner and intermediate trails to collect controls. Ride within your abilities, learn how to use the orienteering map provided and be safe in the knowledge that you can easily find your way on the marked trails. Once confident of your skills you can Choose your own Adventure and go off the sign posted trails to collect other controls available. It will be possible to collect ALL controls in under 21kms!
