** Unsupported riders take their own tents and other camping equipment. This gear is transported each day and a return trip to Cairns for you and your bike is provided at the end of the ride. Bike boxes/bags for road bikes are placed in the luggage truck at the start of the ride and then used when in Karumba after completing the 780kms. Mountain bikes are placed on trailers for the return journey and no bike bags/boxes are required. Please note that all unsupported riders will receive a bus ticket for the return journey.

***Support Persons usually set up their camp for a rider who is taking on the 780km challenge. We are often asked why these people need to pay to be part of the event. There are three key reasons; 1. The event provides food and drink, accommodation venues and nightly entertainment for all persons on the ride (riders and support persons) 2. Duty of care – event organisers take responsibility for the general safety of all persons on the ride, providing Police and medical support, plus arranging key logistical elements that benefit all involved with the C2K adventure. 3. All support persons receive an event top as part of their registration.

****All riders under 15 years of age will miss the first two days and ride from Mt Garnet. Permission may be granted in writing by the Coordinator to complete the whole ride. This approval process will take into account the levels of risk and the skill of the young rider. This is to be negotiated with the coordinator by the rider’s care-givers at least a week before the commencement of the ride. This is necessary as Pack Riding requires sound mature judgment on the part of all riders. Judgment necessary to avoid potential spills leading to major physical injuries of members of the pack.
