BOOK YOUR OWN – Flights to Faro, Portugal – Book and Pay for your own flights (approx £75) – Your bikes will be available from 9:00am on the 3rd and must be ready to load by the 9th. It is also your responsibility to arrange a hire car or book a taxi transfer to your hotel (www.holidaystaxis.com)
NEW! PRICING STRUCTURE:
Bike Prep / Requirements:
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 you at all times. *This is our advice only.
Tools – Please carry a tool kit for your bike
Mousses – are a definite bonus
Mobile phone – Capable of international calls at least. A smartphone with Google maps of the area pre-downloaded could save you a lot of hassle. 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…..I know, its happened.
Tyres – The terrain generally gives a lot of grip especially when wet, so a medium/soft rear with regular FIM tread is the way forward. One set of tyres will generally hang on for the three days. Unless you are carrying all the equipment to change a tube, Mousses are a must.
Fuel – Based upon a standard 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 list of suitable gps devices listed below.
The Labyrinth: big drops and gnarly off cambers….
The hub of the event is Bica Boa. Bica Boa is a small relaxed privately run hotel about 5 mins walk north of Monchique town centre. This is our main recommendation but with only a handful of rooms it sells out very quickly.
Our second choice is the chic and newly re-opened Mcdonald Monchique Resort, a fantastic and well priced boutique spa hotel just south of Monchique….there are plenty of rooms and parking.
The are many hotels to choose from and some nice villas to be rented for not a lot of money…..
