Can riders of all levels participate?

Our motto is ‘it’s a ride, not a race’. While there are elite riders participating each year, we also accept entrants who are new to the sport of MTB.

All reasonable efforts will be made to facilitate the access and inclusion of any persons with disabilities. Please contact us directly if you have related enquiries.

How many litres of water would you recommend we carry?

There will be water stations provided at the half way point, but do not rely on them. Riders will need to run a 2 or 3L hydration pack, like a Camelbak, for water. We also suggest riders carry a bottle of electrolytes. Depending on your speed, participants will be riding for 3-5 hours each day. It is therefore the riders responsibility to carry enough water and nutrition to sustain the stage.

Is accommodation included in the any of the packages?

Accommodation is not included in any registration packages. For information about accommodation in the region, please visit www.visit12apostles.com.au/ or call Visit 12 Apostles on 03 5598 6089 or 1300 137 255.
