Bike and Gear Checks
There will be no compulsory bike checks or gear checks.
It’s important to have a very reliable and well maintained bike for this Epic event. You will have a bad day if you neglect your bike on this demanding course. It is highly recommended that you visit your local bike store to get your bike in its best condition possible.
You don’t want to carry too much gear so consider carefully the clothing you need. The weather can change quickly from extremely hot to snowing in a matter of hours, so study the weather forecasts and plan for the worst case scenario from that.
Part of this challenge is to get your mind, your body and your bike in top condition so you can give yourself the best chance of finishing this iconic journey. To that end, it is your responsibility to prepare accordingly and accept responsibility for yourself during this event.
