Obviously this is an impossible question for you answer without knowing the extent of my incompetence, but would there really be no point in giving it a try? Is there a good chance I would find it undrideable? Or would it just take me a very long time?

A mate of mine often cycles 120 miles "home" on his MTB when he comes down to visit.
Thanks for all your responses: a great help.

I'm a novice in the sense that I've never participated in any sort of organised MTB event before, but I'm reasonably fit and could probably manager 50k provided it isn't too technical. I suppose there's only one way to find out.
