TEMPERATURE

A great time of year to be riding! Days should be perfect and in the mid 20's, with fresh mornings.. As always though, prepare for anything, this is adventure riding!

ROUTE DIFFICULTY

This route will contain a large mix of terrain, highlighted by some great forest double track and amazing views through the Glass House Mountains. There will also be some of the best twisty bitumen riding that you can find. Some off road riding experience will help but isn't necessary.  There will be numerous up and downhills . Keep in mind the crew is there to support you through any difficult terrain.

WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING

We want this to be easy for you! All you need to do is turn up on your GS in your riding gear and have a 55L soft roll bag with your personal luggage in it. We will carry the bag in the support vehicles for you. A small tank bag or tail bag is handy to carry gear liners, spare gloves etc. Below is a list of some items that can make the event more enjoyable.

  • Two pairs of gloves, regular and cold weather

  • Thermal clothing layer is great to add warmth without bulk when riding

  • Gore Tex or wind breaking layer to ride in, especially for cold mornings

  • Goggles

  • Camelbak for hydration and to carry snacks

  • Warm jacket for nights

  • Garmin Inreach, Spot Tracker or similar. While not required these are a great investment for remote riding, even amongst a supported group.

TYRES

Off road style tyres are required, we recommend Metzeler Karoo 3 tyres and this is what staff bikes will be fitted with. Other examples are Continental TKC 80, Pirelli Scorpion Rallye or similar. Please begin the event with new or as near new tyres as possible. We will carry limited spares but they are for fixing damaged tyres only, not for tyre replacement due to wear.
