This event is for those who find the other ‘heroic’ events too arduous. It is still demanding, however, and some bike skills are necessary.

The route will be marked at relevant intersections and there will be a ‘broom wagon’, however participants will be responsible for their own navigation, nutrition, mechanicals and safety. GPS devices are permitted, but riders should also seriously consider having a copy of the maps for this region as a backup. Participants must carry their own food/water. There will be at least 1 Brevet point that is shared with the other courses, serving free refreshments.

Carry whatever you’ll need to survive! Be prepared to cope with broken spokes, flats, broken chains, etc.

The following are suggested:

  • Extra half links.
  • At least 2 tubes and a perhaps patch kit.
  • A decent hand pump (and possibly CO2 also, but never rely on it solely).
  • A multi-tool that does everything.
  • Extra Derailleur hanger?
  • The capacity to carry fluids and food, although it will be possible to re-provision en-route.
  • Front & rear lighting for the possibility of late return.
  • Form partnerships & be prepared to help out your fellow riders!
