Entry Details

You must register. Click on this link
to register. online registration includes three steps:

  • Individual entry – you can ride as a team of two or three and share the SPOT between you, but you each must enter indiviually for safety reasons. Enter a common team name when you register. The entry fee is a donation to the McQueens Valley Mountainbike Club (Inc.) which works out at $25 a day – what a bargain!
  • Booking a SPOT device or you can use your own
  • Arrange your tracking

SPOTs and tracking are compulsory – for your safety – and for friends, family and the Flahute to stalk you! There is a special deal through SPOTNZ for these events.

An electronic map in gpx format, cue sheets and a ride guide will be emailed out on receipt of registration and donation from 30 days before the event up to the Wednesday evening before the event.

IF you withdraw after the Wednesday prior to the event or don’t turn up on the day, there will be no refunds. There is some room for movement at our discretion. This will help the planners relax and if you register early, to get great rates on accommodation.

You will need to prepare everything else – your legs, your bike, your kit, food, maps, backup, transport, you name it.

It is highly recommended that you have a physical map as a back up. Your device will run out of batteries at some point.
