FAQ

1. Will there be a winner / medals / etc.?

No, this is a MTB Tour, not a race. The group of riders will aim to keep the same pace on the flats, while riders will be allowed to ride their own pace on the up- and downhills.

2. Will the tour be timed?

No, there will be NO official timing of the event. Each rider is welcome to time his own progress in a personal capacity.

3. What type of bike can I ride on?

A mountain bike (esp. Enduro / XC) or gravel bike would be fine. Most of the route will be on gravel roads.
