This year’s edition of the 2016/17 Winter Lanequest Series, starts on the 4th September and then will run every first Sunday of the month through to March 2017.
For those not sure what a lanequest is, its simply a 2-hour timed event where you have a maximum of 30 check points to navigate around. Each checkpoint carries either 10, 20 or 30 points and the idea is to get as many points as possible in the 2 hours. The idea is we use quiet traffic-free roads whenever possible. It’s a fun event that can be ridden as an individual or can be completed as a team.
In total there are 30 controls, with controls numbered between 1 to 10 being worth 10 points, 11 to 20 being worth 20 points and 21 to 30 being worth 30 points. You select your own route and try and collect as many points as possible, baring in mind the different points for different controls.
It simple!! These events attract lots of different people riding lots of different styles of bikes, with the aim being a bit of fun, while exploring different roads than you would normally ride! After the event there is free food for people who have entered the event. So why not give it a go!
Plans for the next Lanequest Winter Series are:
Sunday 1st October 2017
Sunday 5th November 2017
Sunday 3rd December 2017
Sunday 4th February 2018
Sunday 4th March 2018 (postponed to 11th March 2018)
