The Cloudride Prologue event is an entry level for first time bikepacking racers to test gear, navigation and themselves over two or three days and gain an experience of the terrain and fatigue levels that they will encounter on the full 1000k Monaro Cloudride. A secondary option is for strong but time poor XC or road racers who want to dig a little deeper without having to commit to the expense of a full multi-day bikepacking rig. These riders will need to meet the navigation challenges, ride light, ride hard and hit the commercial ‘sleep/food’ options to make it work…. or maybe an ‘allnighter’ as has been the recent fashion.
