King’s Lynn Mountain Bike Club halfway through cross country time trials at West Bilney

By Pete Woodhouse

King’s Lynn Mountain Bike Club (KLMTB) are halfway through their unique cross country time trials.

Held at West Bilney woods over a 3.2-mile course, to achieve a time the riders have to complete two laps of the challenging course with some tough climbs and fast downhill single track.

There was also opportunity for the juniors to take up the challenge with a shorter 1.1-mile loop for the 8–14 years and a half-mile section for the under 8’s; both with technical single track to negotiate.
