If you are looking for a challenge in 2019, then check out Round Table Hike and Bike, one of the most popular events in the Round Table calendar!
Hike and Bike - Whitby 12th-14th April 2019
The Hike and Bike is a great event, which sees 100 competitors across 25 teams taking part in a weekend of hiking, biking, socialising and a few beers along the way. It is organised by Area 9 Round Tables from Yorkshire, and is open to teams from all clubs of the Round Table Family, Round Table, Ladies Circle, 41 Club and Tangent.
At just £120.00 for your accommodation and all meals as a competitor (or £100 to come and marshal) all you need to remember are your walking boots, a bike (or hire one locally) and some beer money. It really is a great value and always memorable weekend.
After great events in Castleton 2017 and Ambleside 2018, this year we are descending on Whitby to take in some sea air along its excellent beaches and coastal paths and the North Yorkshire Moors. Accommodation will be provided at the 4 star rated YHA Whitby and we will have exclusive use of the site for the weekend.
How do I book in?
You can book in with one of our easy booking options.
You can book in as a team of 3 or 4 from your club, or book in individually and we'll team you up. Based upon the success of last year's events we suggest booking your places early. Either pay your deposit, or pay in full and save a fiver.
Arrival should be at registration desk which will be situated within the YHA. You should aim to register between 4pm and 7pm (arrangements will be possible for pre-notified late arrivals).
On Saturday morning after a decent breakfast, teams will start to check out on the hike at pre-assigned intervals, being given the first checkpoint grid references. The hike is split into checkpoints (which are provided at each stage of the hike) where there are physical and mental challenges. Lunch is provided on the way round, and the hike takes all day being usually 15-20miles (but with plenty of opportunities for rest at the checkpoints).
On Sunday morning, you will start a 20-25 mile bike ride. Again you are checked out at pre-assigned intervals (dependent on your team position on Saturday evening). For the bike you are given a full list of checkpoints, and have 3 hours to orienteer your team to score the most points from the checkpoints you visit.
There are various awards to compete for:
- The Main Competition. Decided amongst the top half of the draw following the Hike.
- The Plate Competition. Decided amongst the bottom half of the draw following the Hike.
- The Area 9 Cup. Awarded to the best placed Area 9 team overall.
