What is a Funduro?
The PCBC Funduro is an event for everyone young to old, who loves riding their mountain bikes, cruising up the hills and racing down. That’s right you are only timed on the “down” section. Timing this year will be provided by ONETIME, – proper timing!!!
You will be provided with a map before the race and you select your own route to complete (in any order) the 7 race stages within 4 hours. The race stages selected are a combination of flowing and technical grade 3 and grade 4 single track. If you are considering entering please make sure you can ride grade 4 trails (the ones in the open and in the natives). We also have an e-bike category.
There will be no shuttles this year. So that after race beer (supplied by Deep Creek Brewing Company), and pizza will be a well deserved treat. Following a refreshment and a bite to eat there will be prize giving. We have loads of spot prizes and cash prizes for 1st, 2nd 3rd overall. Male and female thanks to Mount Eden Cycles, plus prizes for category placings.
We have still tried to make this a cheap event for all. A professionally timed event, plus post race refreshments and pizza for only:
$40 – PCBC Member (>18)
$50 – PCBC Non-member (>18) – includes day pass
$20 – PCBC Member (<18)
$30 – PCBC Non-member (<18) – includes day pass
Cheap as!!! Online entry only at this stage.

Please note that the forest will be closed during the event, but feel free to come in and watch if you’re not competing.
We are after volunteers to marshal the event. You will get a packed lunch, beer/pizza post race and will be included in the prize draw. If this sounds like you, please get in touch.
