The Riding

The riding on this trip will range from easy to very difficult. We will be traversing a wide range of terrains from rainforest to sand dunes, beaches and highways to mountain tracks and logging trails. There will also be creek crossings, river crossings and bull dust holes. Almost every day a different type of landscape and terrain.

This event is not a race, it requires rider and machine to endure some of Australia’s toughest tracks. Over 3000km, averaging 320km per day. It is an endurance event, if you look after your machine it will get you there and back.
