A number of channel partners from across the channel are gearing up for this year’s Gamma Charity Mountain Bike challenge, which will see them take on the award-winning Cannock Chase Forest trails in June.

Ideal for both occasional and seasoned bikers, this two-day event will take place over Wednesday 3rd and Thursday 4th June and will involve orienteering through Cannock Chase’s choice of courses with a lunchtime BBQ, a Gala dinner with auction in the evening, and further orienteering on day two.

The Mountain Bike Challenge offers the chance to spend some time in the open air with fellow channel partners who are bike enthusiasts, as well as a chance to raise money for the Samaritans and Rays of Sunshine charities. There are some great auction prizes on offer, including a mountain bike worth £750, weekend pass for BikePark in Wales and two lots of mountain bike skills days (one in Dorking with Singletrack School and the other with Chasing Trails in Yorkshire).

Over the two days, participants will work together to complete various activities including mountain bike orienteering, mountain bike trail riding and distant riding time trial.

There are still a few places remaining and channel partners can sign up today by going to http://content.gamma.co.uk/mountain-bike-challenge-2015. Registration closes on 19th May.

Bob Falconer, Chief Executive, Gamma says: “I’m really looking forward to taking part in this year’s Gamma Charity Mountain Bike Challenge and thrilled to be supporting two fantastic charities; Samaritans and Rays of Sunshine. As well as raising funds for these well-deserving causes, it’s a great opportunity to spend a couple of days cycling and catching up with our Channel Partners in the Staffordshire countryside.”

Dan Cunliffe, Director, Rock Systems says: “I find the Gamma charity events fantastic. Not only are they a great networking opportunity, you get to raise money for good causes too. All in all they are always something great to be a part of and we can’t wait for the Charity Mountain Bike Challenge.”
