Langdon Hills - much more than a race!

The MSG Langdon Hills event is incorporated within the Havoc on the Hill. Alongside the MSG event in the afternoon there will be family fun rides, the infamous hill challenge as well as free bike checks, refreshments, massage therapist and fourcross demonstrations throughout the day!
Please see the action packed itinerary below...

10:00 to 12:00 -Family Activity Trail

A family bike ride with a difference. Follow a route through the woods and find the hidden bases where you can attempt a number of creative and challenging tasks set by members of Thameside Sea scouts. Prizes for all children who complete at least one task. Entry fee is £3 per child with accompanying adults taking part for free. All proceeds go to support the Seascouts.

10.00 to close - Four Cross Demonstration / Have a go!

At this years Langdon hills event the Essex mountain bike community will be introduced to the world of Fourcross. This 'ultimate off-road experience' is perfect for anybody who would like nothing more than to throw themselves down steep, muddy tracks on four wheels! Demonstrations and have a go sessions will start from 10am - so get down early and get involved with the 'rough riders'!

11:30 to 12:30 - Hill Climb Challenge.

A chance to tackle the notorious climb to the summit of One Tree Hill. It may be less than 400 yards but the lactate will really kick in after about halfway and it's all pain from there. Have as many attempts as you like at just £1 a go and see if you can win the prize for the most powerful rider.


As with every event in the series, Langdon Hills promises to provide you with something different. With a scenic combination of woodland, open fields, forest paths and single track your fitness will be tested by a number of lung busting climbs and fast technical descents.
