Summer Cross in the City
Scottish Cycling MTB guru Paul Newnham came up with the idea for
"An Urban Grassroots Mountain Bike Challenge open to all, a race that people can ride to (rather than drive) and a way to get fit but in a fun way.'
For youth riders aged 10-14 there is a separate 24 minute race, whilst Youth A racers get to race with seniors for 48 minutes.
The 1.7 Km course is based on grass and prepared tracks in Craigmillar Castle Park. The course is not highly technical and can be done on a cyclocross bike as well as MTB.
