My apologies folks,
The Gibb River
Challenge this year starts from Derby
and finishes at El Questro
, but on the same dates I mentioned.
It is appropriate to know though as overnight accommodation along the route may be difficult with the multitude of rivers and support staff.
We were traveling the Gibb three years ago during the bike ride, but in the opposite direction. We passed the bulk of the riders between Drysdale River
turnoff and Windjana Gorge
and apart from the courteous slowing down as we passed the groups we had no problem with overnight camping. The riders appreciate you slowing for them and will acknowledge your thoughtfulness with a finger salute as you are creating quite a dust cloud on the unsealed surface
However, this year we will be traveling in the same direction and choose to be ahead of the Ride to avoid and sort of problems such as delays in passing.The Gibb Challenge 2017
