If you want to ride from Cairns to Karumba but don’t have a support crew…no problems! For just $110 we can transport your gear each day of the ride (simply drop it off each morning and collect it when you arrive in town that afternoon).
All gear for unsupported riders needs to be dropped off at the truck on the day of the ride briefing, Friday 25th of June 2021 at the Pullman Cairns International Hotel.
All gear for unsupported riders will be transferred each day by the ride luggage truck. Simply place your luggage by the truck each morning and it will be transported to the next overnight location.
Bikes being transported back to Cairns need to be packed on Friday afternoon shortly after arriving in Karumba. Shortly after arrival at Karumba Point you will be asked to pack your bikes into your bike boxes/bags (provided by you). Your bike box/bag can travel on the trucks from Cairns all the way to Karumba.
Riders are responsible for packing their own bikes into bike boxes (provided by individual riders) at the end of the ride. Bikes can be collected from the Cairns School of Distance Education between 7.00 -11.00 am on Sunday 4th of July.
The day after arriving in Karumba (Saturday 3th of July), the bus will depart Karumba at 6.00am headed for Cairns. The bus generally arrive back in Cairns at 6.00pm that evening. Please note that these buses will only stop in one location in Cairns: The C2K Shed at the Cairns School of Distance Education Campus, 96 Clarke Street, Manunda (5 mins drive from the city centre)
It is your responsibility to make your own arrangements from the drop off point.
Please note that all gear and bikes that are not collected during this time will remain at the School of Distance Education for a period of 7 days only. Unfortunately we are unable to store items for longer than this. Any items still at the school beyond this time period will be offered to the Salvation Army for sale.
(NB: Make sure you pre-order your breakfast for collection when the bus does a quick stop in Normanton. As it is very early the cafe is onpen only for delivery of all our orders. If you have not yet ordered your breakfast do so here: WALLY FORM)
