Map details

Sprint 1:7500, h=2,5m, map size A4

Long distance 1:20000, h=2,5m, map size A3

Short distance 1:10000, h=2,5m, map size A4

All maps surveyed in spring-summer 2012. All maps are drawn according to

International Standard for MTB Orienteering Maps 2010.

All maps will be printed on waterproof paper.

Some areas contain many narrow meandering paths with medium rideability

which have been mapped using continuous black lines (ISMTBOM 832 Path: fast

riding) for better legibility.

Forest extraction roads which do not affect route-choice (i.e have dead end) and have worse than poor rideability have been

mapped with continuous yellow lines (ISMTBOM 509.1 Narrow ride). Long and straight fire breaks/cleared borders between

different forest ownerships have been mapped using the same symbol (i.e ISMTBOM 509.1 Narrow ride). Forest rides which

do not have a clearly visible track/path along them (i.e are overgrown with short grass, moss etc), but have a surface allowing

cycling have been mapped according to rideability.

In open areas, some tracks and paths have been specially prepared or made more visible by cutting grass along the course of

the track/path.

Terrain description and courses

LONG AND MIDDLE, Värska

Sand-based open pine-forest on the banks of Värska bay and Mustoja stream. Moderately

hilly with a lot of medium-sized hills and depressions with 10 - 25 m of height difference in

the central and southern part of the terrain, and flat areas with small contour details and

many marshes on the rest of the area.

Well-developed network of paths in the vicinity of settlements and more sparse network in

the wooded southern part. Majority of tracks are well-rideable with a firm grass and/or dirt

surface; in dry conditions, some tracks with sand-surface get significantly less-rideable.

SPRINT, Räpina

Small town with a regular network of streets. Different types of built-up areas from private

houses to blocks of flats, municipal buildings and historical industrial areas; parks and

wooden areas along the river, around Sillapää castle and on the outskirts of town.

Height differences less than 10 m.
