Payment of the entry fee gives you access to the bike storage and the event’s GPS tracks. Fuel is not included – see note on Fuel
Working lights: There is always a chance you will arrive home in the dark. We also suggest you carry/fit a head torch.
Fully Road Legal: Your bike should be fully UK road legal. Documents should be kept with the bike at all times.
Tools: Please carry a tool kit for your bike.
Mobile phone: At least capable of international calls. A smartphone with Google maps of the area pre-downloaded could save your bacon if you get lost or need an alternative route home as many of the tracks, only meters from where we ride, are actually part of the road network. Google maps will actually navigate you out from the deepest forests.
Tyres: Tyres with large tread, such as Mitas 754 are proven to be NOT your best option. The terrain is not muddy, but has a lot of grit instead, this generally gives a lot of grip especially when wet, so a medium/soft rear with regular FIM tread such as a Mitas EF07 single green is the way forward. One set of tyres will generally hang on for the three and a bit days.
Mousses: With a lot of large sharp sticks in the ground. Unless you are carrying ALL the equipment to change a tube, Mousses really should be used. You are at best, a horrible push away from the nearest road.
- Sump protection is most definitely required.
- Exposed linkage protection is highly recommended.
- Clutch/stator cover protection is advised.
- Hand Guards are definitely essential (wrap-arounds if you’re a serial crasher)
- Disc Guards optional. Bent disc are rare but do happen.
Fuel: Routes are based upon a standard 2T fuel tank with a range of 50 miles, we try to use existing fuel stations where possible, so you will need to carry Euros and some 2 stroke oil. At other times we use a remote fuel point, usually a van at the end of one of the gps sections. In this instance we will provide the fuel containers and monitor your use and either keep a float or reclaim the cash at the end of the day ( no money no fuel ).
GPS and GPS Mount: See GPS section.
