Bike Hire

If you prefer to leave your bike at home, bike hire is available from Outback Cycling. You can add a Pro Bike into your booking upon registering. 


Participants under the age of 15 as at 11th April 2020 must either: ride with a parent or guardian whilst competing in the event, OR be able to satisfy the Event Organiser that the participant is capable to ride the distance unsupervised by demonstrating a thorough history of mountain biking of distances similar to the race. The Event Organiser reserves the right to make the final decision on whether a participant under 15 years is capable of competing unsupervised.

Things to consider are:

  • have they ridden multiple days in a row?

  • What is the longest distance they have ridden?

  • Are they accustom to rocks, sand and technical terrain?

  • Do they have knowledge of basic bike mechanics (changing a tube, using a chain breaker).

  • How would they react if they got lost or ran out of water?

Participants who are 15 years or younger are only eligible to enter the Midi distance event.

Participants over the age of 16 years are eligible to enter either the Midi or Full distance event.

If the Participant is under 18 years of age, as of 11th April 2020, he/she must have a Parent or Guardian agree to the Terms and consent to their participation in The Event.
