You are embarking on a magnificent journey through some of the finest wilderness single track in the world. While this makes moving gear a little more complicated, don’t worry because we have you covered and aim to make it as simple and stress-free as possible.
Each rider will have 1 personal bag moved between each of the Race Camps. These bags must be handed into the Camp Manager no later than 30min prior to your start time. Bags must be no bigger than your normal sized duffle bag or suitcase and weigh no more than 30kgs. All your personal equipment you aren’t riding the stage with, including any food you are bringing, your sleeping mats/bags, bike spares and your camping tents (if you are BYO tent) must be stowed inside the bag for transport.
All care will be taken with the transport of the bags but note they will likely be stacked on top of each other during transport moves.
If you have selected the Deluxe Camping Option, your tent/chair/light/mat does NOT need to fit inside your personal bag.
For those catching airport transfers, your excess gear including your bike boxes/bags will be transported directly from Camp 1 to Camp 3. These must be given to the Camp Manager at Camp 1 no later than 30 minutes prior to your start time on Day 1. They will be moved to a storage area at Camp 3 where you can collect them on your arrival. Note that they are NOT available at Camp 2.
On Day 2 you finish at the beautiful Bay of Fires which is a 13km ride from Camp 3 in St Helens. The Bay of Fires is a gorgeous place to hang out, watch the finish, grab some food and go for a swim. To make this a bit more comfortable, we will transport 1 x small day bag for each rider to the finish of this stage if you choose. Please keep this to the size of a small backpack and hand into the Camp Manager 30 mins prior to your Day 2 start time. We recommend you pack some swimmers, towel, change of clothes, jumper and food/snacks. There will also be other food options available to purchase at the finish area.
