We also have a few recommendations :

* Use a bike that is suitable for the event. Check out our news article Choose your Dirty Boar weapon

* Bring a GPS device and maybe also a USB powerbank/battery because the riding might take longer than you expected. We will provide you with the gpx track a few weeks before the event.

* The ride takes place in a somewhat remote area. So make sure you take all the necessary tools to handle common problems (flat tyres, loose bolts... and maybe also a broken chain). And some cable ties might be usefull for several things.

* You should be able to carry enough food & water to cover, at least, the distance between the feeding stations (60-70km)

* We recommend you bring some good lights. The front light should allow you to see the road and not just be seen.
