So, you’d like to conquer the Pipeline Challenge solo? Nice one! Before you press that register button here are a few things you need to be aware of..
- You’ll be first to leave each morning. This should allow you to reach camp by sunset so long as you can maintain a minimum average speed of 15 km/hr. Day two and four are approx. 180km and 160 km respectively so please ensure you can maintain this speed over long distances before registering as a soloist.
- You’ll need to be self-sufficient. This means having your own support vehicle and driver, OR utilising the event organiser’s logistics trailer. If you choose to use our logistics trailer to transport your camping equipment and belongings, you will need to ride with a well-charged mobile phone and 2 watt minimum handheld 2-way radio so you can remain in contact with the organisers at all times. The last thing we want is for you to get in trouble and not be able to call one of our support vehicles for help.
- We recommend you leave camp carrying as much water as is comfortable, however we will be placing water out at marked spots along the track for our self-sufficient soloists.
If you have any questions regarding registering as a soloist please give Mark or Erica a call on 08 9300 2677.
