Black Mountains MBO - Machen near Cardiff 

For this event you will be exploring the a new area to BMBO, which will see you riding the right of way in the forests & hills of South Wales Valleys just north of Cardiff. The event area preview map will be sent out to all those on the mailing list two weeks prior to the event & the final instruction will be sent out the Friday before. It will also feature the preview map & other details relevant to the event.

When going through the entry process please ensure you add your BMBO Membership Number, if you are not yet a member you can still ride but your result will not count in the UK National League. Full details including membership types, rules & other events around the UK can be found on the BMBO website –

To participate you will need the MapRun App on your Android or iPhone, or a Garmin Watch with the MapRunG App, or any GPS watch. The event ID will be sent out the day before the ride & the PIN code issued at the start. It's important not to enter the PIN code until you are ready to go as your time will start as as soon as you do so. 

The App will not work as well if  your phone is in your jacket front pocket, where you body is shielding it from the sky. For the best satellite coverage it is useful to have it stowed ideally on a handlebar mount, crossbar bag or in the top of your day sack. 

In the meantime please have a read of the MapRun website:
