The Shifty 50 Series is a mass-participation Mountain Bike event series with 50km courses as the predominant race distance. There is also a shorter distance offered at each event.
Each event is hosted in a different location and by different event hosts offering a variety of courses in terrain, climbing, technical sections, and landscape.
50 km is a great distance, go for broke and if you blow up, shouldn’t be too far to the finish. Or plug away and achieve the rewarding feeling of finishing such an event. Training doesn’t need to be too extreme to achieve 50kms and you can try to improve your skill and fitness through the series.
Each event also offers a Shifty Shorty option. These offer a course of approx 20 to 30km in distance for those that need a little less challenge as well as suiting our younger riders.
