IMPORTANT: To the best of our knowledge the details provided are accurate at the time of listing. However, as with any outdoor event of this type, there can always be unforeseen circumstances that will lead to changes or cancellations. For all demo days, please check with the organiser directly to confirm the event is going ahead, timing, location, bike availability and any other additional detail.

We are branding this event ‘Self Supported with benefits’ as it really does not conform to any current event format.

The event focuses on the growing trend in rackless touring, but with a unique twist.

The event is not a race but more a sociable challenge.

From a single start point each rider will visit a series of checkpoints throughout the day.  How they get between the checkpoints will be dependent on their rate of progress … there are up to 3 route options at every checkpoint and your arrival time will determine which route option you are given.

Simply the faster you are the further you ultimately ride… or as we like to view it, the more sociable you are the shorter the distance to the comfort of camp.

Oh and you won’t know the routes until you get to the checkpoint and you won’t know your ultimate destination until you get there … fun?  We think so.
