There will be 1 or 2 Waterpoints at each stage. These points will supply energy drinks,cold water,coke and snacks. Please check the route section for the exact distances between the Waterpoints.
Alcoholic and soft drinks will be on sale from the bar in the rider area.
The race organisers will supply single source water for the waterpoints and consumption during each stage. All tap water in our race villages is perfectly safe for drinking.
Our community partner will supply a secure bike storage facility. Riders will be required to sign their bikes in and out. Bikes have to be personally delivered and picked up from this location – no exceptions. Although there are no real safety concerns within the race village riders must at all times be alert and keep their equipment safe.
The Storms River Traverse will supply a full medical service at the race village and en-route. Trained medical personnel will also be on the route on quad bikes or 4×4 vehicles to handle any emergencies that may occur. More serious cases will be transferred to any of the local hospitals, where a more comprehensive service is available.
Basic medical services are for free, but recurring injuries or treatment of pre-existing chronic conditions will incur a charge. Please carry your medical insurance details in case of hospitalisation.
Please ensure that you bring your personal medication as prescribed by your physician. We are riding through areas with a high population of honey bees, so come prepared in this regard. Also ensure that you are carrying a sun block with at least a 20 SPF factor.
