Route and Ride Brief
This is mountain biking in its purist form.
The 1st day of 45km will take us up to 6 hours to complete, this is mainly due to the river and estuary crossings which consume large amounts of time.
Keeping this in mind, please bring sun cream in your ride kit as you will need to keep putting it on after each crossing to avoid getting sun burnt.
Please make sure you have waterproof bags for all important gadgets like cell phones, bike computers and cameras as you will be swimming across rivers.
Please note that this is a tour and not a race, we ride as a group and the emphasis is on fun and exploration.
Cell phones and Battery Charging facilities This is one of the best things about this trip; NO Cell Phone Signal In Camp. There is a 5min walk up a hill to full cell phone signal so loved ones can be contacted as you need.
The camp is run on wind and solar power and does have cell phone, camera and any other gadgets battery charging facility; please bring your own power cables.
A Head Lamp is the most important piece of luggage to bring, so make sure you have one!
There is a full Bar available which we suggest you support.
If you do like your good quality wine then we suggest you bring your own, the lodge does charge a corkage feePlease bring your own snacks, chips chocolate etc as there is definitely no “Woolies” up the road.
The water is safe to drink but we recommend each person brings a 5l of their own for the weekend.
This is the Wild Coast and there is a possibility of ticks so please make sure you get a tick prevention cream which you can use.
