Threshold Events will be running shuttles from the basecamp to your hotel from 4pm each day (apart from Friday 6th where there will only be one shuttle at 9.30pm). The exact timings of these shuttles will vary and will depend on the proximity of the hotel to the basecamp.
Event day logistics
Each day you will start/finish at the basecamp and be shuttled to and from your hotel accommodation.
As we need to coordinate shuttle transport for 75 riders you may have to wait a short while for your shuttle. You will be able to help yourself to afternoon tea and have a massage while you wait, and also have your day bag available to shower and change into something comfortable.
As you will be eating, having your massage and attending the evening briefing in the basecamp, there will be shuttles going to and from the hotels back to the basecamp. This is particularly for those that arrive early in to the basecamp and want to go back to their hotel before returning to the basecamp for dinner and evening briefing.

This was an amazing, incredible experience despite the pain, intensity of effort and personal struggles, the positive atmosphere, fantastic support and logistical miracles helped make this huge endeavor achievable for non-elite cyclists like myself.

Amazing organisation & helpful, friendly, enthusiastic & well trained support teams which inspired confidence.Encouragement to complete the challenge from everyone. I certainly did not find it easy but felt that there was a massive support team if needed so did not feel isolated at all.
