Bike approx. 12km, foot 4X approx 1km. Event as a whole is for teams of 2-4, foot stages may be done separately by individuals, families etc. Experimental event, see website below for OHV's training philosophy, and you can see the maps there for Chapter One.

About the biking. It's largely on the river trails and quiet roads but we have controls in the willows, and may cross the grass which is soft  at this time of year. You'll be able to do it on a road bike but will have to push for short distances. A MTB is best. Security - we recommend locking pairs of  bikes together at the transitions while you do the foot.
