Will the biking be steep and technical and will I have to push or carry my bike?
Sunday 12th May 2013
Yes, the biking will be technical in places and you should plan to cover everything from super fast single track to steep, rocky descents, as well as more sedate fire trails and 4WD tracks. An element of bike pushing or carrying is possible, often dictated by riders skill, weather/mud, or landowners or on conservation grounds, but we appreciate that nobody really enjoys pushing or carrying a bike so we will try and keep it to a minimum (famous last words). Note: we hear the odd team grumble about having to push up a section but invariably the team before them managed to ride it. Just take it on the chin and move on. Nobody likes to hear people moaning.
