OTHER SERVICES SUPPLIED BY US
In addition to the tent and mattresses detailed previously, each competitor will be issued with a 100 litre (530mm x 380mm x 440mm deep) dust/waterproof plastic luggage box. (It is essentially the same as the Big Jim Black Plastic box found commonly in Makro stores.) There is ample space in the tent in which to store your luggage box. All competitors’ clothing, bike spares, energy drinks and other personal items need to be packed into this box. Each box will also be provided with a strap to secure your box once you closed it. These will be transported between each stage location. For practical reasons, no other bags and miscellaneous items will be transported by our logistics services. The idea is to keep it simple and accurate.
LUGGAGE BOX ARRANGEMENTS:
Collect your luggage box at registration. Thereafter load your packed luggage box onto the box truck prior to the start of the race each day. Check it in with the Super Group trucks positioned at the registration venue. Natal Canoe Club House, Camps Drift, Pietermaritzburg. The Super Group trucks will transport your black box to the first race village, where you will find it stacked in team order.
TRANSPORT FOR ADDITIONAL LUGGAGE NOT REQUIRED DURING THE RACE:
Although we will only transport the luggage box supplied during the race, we will transport the luggage that you do not require during the race (such as your bike box and other bags) from Pietermaritzburg directly to Blue Lagoon, Durban. You will have access to this luggage only when you arrive at the finish in Blue Lagoon, Durban. Luggage, kit and other items not required during the race should be handed to the transport manager positioned at Camps drift registration venue, Pietermaritzburg. Please check that you load this luggage on the truck going directly to the finish in Blue Lagoon, Durban.
There will be a bike wash area in the race village. You will have to clean your bike properly if it requires a service. No dirty bikes will be serviced.
You will find basins in each race village in which you can hand-wash your cycling clothes. It is advisable; however, to bring one set of cycling clothing for each day since wet clothing may not dry overnight.
