ABOUT THE ROAD
ABOUT THE ROAD:

On gravel sections (about 60% of the total distance) the route could be demanding. These are mostly new tracks, leading through hitherto inaccessible passes. Tracks could at times be flooded by overflowing rivers. There will be lots of tight turns and hairpins. The asphalt sections, in turn, will require a lot of attention due to traffic – which may at times be chaotic. High altitude can affect the concentration and handling ability of riders.

SPEED

It is not a race, and we care about safety. We will be going at our own pace and make sure all participants reach the destination safely.
