IS IT A TRIP FOR ME?
This winter trip is designed for intermediate riders looking for a fun ride in a Dakar Rally-like desert. While most of the ride is done on double-tracks and gravel roads, there will be a few technical sections here and there such as deep sand and rolling rocks. It will never be extremely hard but it’s a reminder that the trip is not for beginners.
Weather should be great at this time of year, but you should be prepared for cold temperatures in the morning and evening. Remember that we don’t control the climate!
Last, but not least, we will be riding the Tenere in very remote areas where search and rescue might need hours to reach us. Safety will be our top priority over performance.
Overall, the challenge is perfectly doable for any rider in good physical condition and willing to put the effort to expand their horizons!
YOUR OWN ADVENTURE… WITH ALL THE SUPPORT YOU NEED
We provide all the tools:
⊕ Fully fitted Tenere 700 with bags and GPS
⊕ Van to carry your luggage so you can ride light
⊕ Support riders who know the trails, carry tools and have satellite communication.
However, you’re in charge of your adventure and you will be responsible for managing your effort and riding at a safe pace.
Dirt or pavement ? Everyday, a morning briefing will let you know all about the day’s ride, after which you can decide between riding on the dirt or opting for the pavement option.
Riding in group: We’re in the adventure together, but it doesn’t mean we have to be together at all times. We have one support rider riding ahead of the group. Remember, everybody can ride at their own pace, can stop to take pictures… We want you to feel like you’re truly on vacation!
Sharing memories: After reaching the hotel at the end of the afternoon, the riders will have dinner in a restaurant and will be sharing their adventures!
