 OVERVIEW

The route is just over 300km long with 6,500m of ascent and lots of off-road (~30% of the distance, >50% of the time), to be ridden in two days
You will most likely ride some of this route in the dark so front and rear lights are obligatory

This route is MADE for gravel/adventure bikes.  You'll need to get your head down on the road to get the miles in and the route regularly jumps off-road so >30mm tyres are recommended

There are 5 timed segments each day designed to test riders' strength, bike handling, and determination on a variety of surfaces over mixed terrain
