Part geo-caching, part-audax, this event is suitable for on-road and off-road riding as there is no set route to follow. If you’re ready to test your navigation, ingenuity and independence then this is the ride for you!
Event HQ will be at Papworth Everard Village Hall. Registration will open at 8am (along with the coffee stall) and participants will at this point be given a map marked with checkpoints. Riders can set out any time from 9am so take your time to plan your route and decide which checkpoints to grab. All checkpoints are accessible by road or bridleway – often the off-road route is more direct but not as fast as the road route. So should you go on or off road? The choice is yours!
There’ll be a stamp at each checkpoint: mark up your brevet card as you go and when you return to HQ we’ll add up your points tally so you know how you’ve done. There’ll also be a bowl of soup awaiting you (and more coffee) and kudos from your fellow riders waiting to discuss which routes you took and checkpoints you found. Make sure you’re back by 3pm, which gives you plenty of time to enjoy the excellent on-road and off-road riding around south-west Cambridgeshire!
New for this year is a running event alongside the Cyclo-Cacher. There'll be 9 run checkpoints and we think you could reach all of them by running about 25km, but of course you can choose to visit fewer checkpoints and run much less than this.
Entry £10 in advance, £12 on the day. For more information and to sign up please go to our registration site .
