The Rivette QUESTars Adventure Race Series

Questars 180 Challenge



Kit List

What you NEED to bring...

Per Person

  • Cycle Helmet
  • Suitable Offroad Bike - Mountain bikes (with front suspension) are recommended. Other types of bikes (e.g. cyclocross bikes) may not be as suitable and may restrict your progress if it's wet / muddy but you may use them if you wish to do so providing they have appropriate tyres for off road use (slick tyres are not allowed). Any participant using an e-bike must declare this before they start and will be ranked separately. Check your bike beforehand to make sure it's in a good condition! If you have a last minute emergency and need to hire a mountain bike, please contact us as soon as possible and we'll see if we can get one for you.
