    What if I can't finish the day's ride?
    We expect you have trained enough to be able to complete each day. However if the situation arises we have a support vehicle to follow at the rear and will pick you and your bike, and drive you to the evening camp.

    What about accommodation?
    This is an adventure holiday so camping will be the main accommodation. We have upgrades to safari tents, motel, cabins and hotels on some rides [see itinerary]. Although if you wish to upgrade at any other time you can do so at your own expense.

    What about road trains?
    Most have CB radios and are usually aware of cyclists on the road. They are very courteous, and give you plenty of room. However they are very big and are difficult to manoeuvre so it would be advisable to pull over and let them pass without incident.

    What about the weather?
    Our tours have been timed to take advantage of favourable weather conditions. But Mother Nature is unpredictable so some days we may have head winds and or rain. Temperatures will be from 0 deg to 30 deg. A good quality sleeping bag would be advisable. A good night’s sleep is important.

    Do I need insurance?
    Travel insurance is recommended to cover such things as lost deposits, lost or stolen gear. There may be many reasons why a cyclist may have to withdraw from the ride- injury, health, weddings, business, personal, and more. Cancelation fees can be a major financial loss to you and a small business. We need to adhere to our cancelation policies.
