Am I strong enough for the trip?
Raids are among our toughest trips with roads and terrain off the beaten track. Our guides and mechanics will support every rider to go beyond their usual level of riding. Each individual trip is rated for difficulty.
What kind of assistance can riders expect on the road?
When you’re riding you’ll always have at least one ride guide on the road with the group. Raids are more self-sufficient than a Randonnée, so while a mechanic will be available they won't be tracing the route or offering on-road support during the day. Your guides will be able to help you out with ride food and drink, as well as local knowledge, first aid, a morale-boosting chat and – if necessary – a hand to push you up the hill if you’ve run out of energy.
