WHAT This 'Explorer' event will challenge experienced MTB/gravel bikepacking teams in the rugged terrain west of Loch Lomond between Tarbet and Oban over five days. Teams of four, on mountain or gravel bikes, compete to locate checkpoints hidden along the numerous roads, gravel tracks and mountain trails.  Teams will select their own routes, moving together and sometimes in pairs to gather as many checkpoints as possible in the set time. Strategy, planning and route selection will be key to success. Teams will need to be self-sufficient, with light bike camping gear, choosing when to rest and when to press on. Currently, places are limited to six teams to ensure the event complies with COVID19 regulations and teams should be in a self-contained 'bio-bubble'.   WHO Team of four people experienced in: Bikepacking with elements up to MTB 'Red Run' level of difficulty. Travelling up to 50-100km a day depending on route selection and level of enthusiasm,
