The event offers a group for any bike. You dont to have a Heroic to do the Century. See "choose your ride" and have a look where you want to ride.
We want any bike to participate. Heroic is different but a bike is all you need.
How fast is Fast?
Choose your group Fast or Slow with this rough guide:
Fast- your average ride is more than 30km/hr
Slow- you like the scenery less than 30km/hr.
Rain, Hail, shine?

You must carry everything you think is neccesary- like the olden days!
You are responsible for your own safety, equipment, speed & course on the variety of terrain on your ride.

Yes. Beautiful scenery awaits away from the main road. Its like the olden days.
The gravel is over a limestone base . It varies depending on rainfall, and time of year..
Our test pilots advice was:
"I just rode 21mm training tyres but I'd change to 25mm if i could."
"Pick your line, turn slowly, keep your weight back, keep pedalling"
"Try- higher side on a curve, far edges for packed sand, the rut of a car tyre, a washaway in the rain, watch for other riders tracks."
