SPAMBiking currently organise 3 events per year * :
The Winter Challenge - we're sorry that there is no event this year due to continued problems getting access to the MOD land on Salisbury Plain - we hope to be back in 2018!
Sunday 18th December 2016 - RESULTS HERE
Born of the original one and only New Year Mountain Bike Event - The Salisbury Plain Challenge, the SPAM Winter Challenge offers 3 distances over all weather tracks which can offer a post-Christmas challenge to the leisure rider or the experienced racer. course distances from 25km - 50km means there is something suitable for all. Fun and probably frost await the riders who brave the wintery weather for this one!
The competitive 12hr (with 6hr option) Erlestoke 12 - we hope to be able to organise this event again in 2018
Hailed by many competitors as having one of the best course laps of this type in the UK. Running from Midday to Midnight (with 6 hr option running within the main event), this event offers great off-road racing, with over 50% singletrack trails, to solo riders, male and female, pairs and teams for those who prefer to share the challenge with mates. The course surrounds a friendly race village with live (chip) timing from a professional company and free camping to competitors, support crews and families.
The Blast - we hope to be able to organise this event again in 2018
Organised as a leisure off-road event for all abilities, this challenge has been running for 15 years and has offered various formats from long laps to big loops! Dependent on permission from the land-owners, the route and format tends to vary from year to year but will be advertised prior to entry opening. Once again, the course is designed by local riders to pick out challenging aspects of the Wiltshire landscape in addition to fast tracks and fun trails. Suitable for experienced riders (longer distance offered), leisure riders or families and younger riders ** (with supervision) as multiple course distances are offered.
* All SPAMBiking events are predominately run on MOD land and are therefore subject to permission which could be withdrawn at any time due to military training. In the event of cancellation, all entrants will be contacted via email and offered a refund or entry into a future event.
We currently have an annual licence to allow access on the event dates listed above, unless there are changes in military training requirements.
** The Blast and the Winter Challenge are suitable for children from 8 years with some experience of off-road riding.
