7 Days of trail/enduro riding with some big climbs (mostly on dirt roads) and some great singletrack on the descents. Our average rides tend to be about 20-30km in length with about 1000-1500m elevation. You can expect the weather to be hot (25-30 degrees celcius) and maybe even a day of rain if you’re lucky (Hello, hero dirt!). Our trails are dry, dusty and mostly rocky so we recommend riding 120mm-160mm full suspension bikes. Tubeless tyres are a must (thorns) and we recommend at least 2.3″ wide tyres.
