The route will be accompanied by trained cyclists, paramedics and bike mechanics. There will be several organised pit stops providing appropriate food and drinks along the way, for riders to take a break, refresh and re-energise until the next pit stop.
The route has been designed to be challenging as well as fun and will lead the riders through panoramic landscapes, breathtaking views and untouched scenic nature.
The constant change of scenery will enhance the pleasure of cycling.
Our riders will be greeted enthusiastically upon the completion of the ride with a gala Finish Line celebratory.
Further information will be provided closer to the event.
