Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

What happens if a participant fails to finish the stage?
Remember, this is not a competition but an excursion in stages meant to challenge your own physical fitness and measure yourself against your own progress. The route has been designed so that riders can opt for easier routes if they feel tired. All the routes and their variants can be easily identified on the rental GPS units, so each biker can decide what to do during each stage, based on their physical conditioning. Plus, the service van will always be at hand to assist the group.  

Is training necessary?
YES, IT’S crucial!  Not just anyone can handle a single stage with 4,500+ m of elevation gain! This program is only recommended for extremely well-trained cyclists.

Are there any other options in case of adverse weather conditions?
Sir Alan Flemming once stated: “There is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing.” Therefore, in case of bad weather, the group will depart on bike but, since we have a service van accompanying the group, bikers can always ask for a ride. Under extreme conditions, the stages will either be shortened or modified
