I'm helping to organise an event in the Midland Trailquests Spring Series at Alveley, Shropshire, between Kidderminster and Bridgnorth, next Sunday.

For those who know nothing about trailquesting, it's a navigation event on mountain bikes.
You will be given a map with 36 control points of different values marked on it, mostly off road, in an area of about 13x10km, you then have 4 hours to visit as many as you can.
There is no set route. Nobody ever gets to all of them, so you can choose whether to go for lots of easy low value CPs, or fewer high value ones.
There's more information on...

...or if you've got any questions I will try to answer them here.
As I won't be riding I will be available to help any beginners at the start. I'm not going to give away any insider information, but I will give whatever advice I can so you're not completely on your own if it's your first event.

I've ridden to every CP in the last week and we've got some great trails lined up. Fast double track farm tracks, wooded single track, panoramic views of the Malverns, Clee Hill and Hay Bluff, a foot/cycle ferry across the Severn and level crossings across the Severn Valley steam railway, all linked up by quiet country lanes.
I am a mountain biking god.
Unfortunately, my bike's an atheist.
