Self-supported bikepacking event on an 800km fixed route connected by 4 ferries. The route mainly goes on fast double tracks but includes a few rocky single tracks, sandy sections, about 2 hours of hike-a-bike, and a minimal amount of tarmac to connect everything.
It follows the classic rules and principles of self-supported cycling events, but in the spirit of traditional Audax, participants are here allowed to ride in a group and draft each other. This will encourage participants to plan stages and create a pelotón between ferry connections.
The Audax pace is the challenge to connect all the scheduled ferries in a non-stop ride, it’s only achievable by ultra-cycling athletes, and the entry fee will be fully refunded to every rider fast enough to make it.
The event is more focused on the experience rather than the final results. There’s no time limit. There are no prizes, no medals, no brevet cards or finisher diplomas.
