Fitness: The fitter you are, the further you will go. The most challenging, and most fun part of the course is the hilly section from the Tully Gorge Bridge to Elizabeth Grant Falls and return. Intermediate skills required for this bit as well.
What to bring: All riders will need to be self-sufficient and carry spare tubes, pumps and water. Do I need to mention the obvious - a helmet rated to Australian Standards and an off-roadworthy bike.
Course Markings: Nil, so don’t get lost.
Traffic: Riders must give way to traffic on all roads and tracks. The tracks are NOT closed to traffic, all normal road rules apply.
Registration: Preferred option is to pre-register by emailing [email protected] especially if you intend to camp and you don’t want to sleep under a tree.
PAY CASH ON THE DAY.
