A Few Questions For The 2018 Women’s Navigation Ride Weekend
Can I invite my husband/partner to join?
While any woman rider or female pillion is welcome to join, our male compatriots aren’t invited to join this time around, except those hosting and helping out. But don’t worry! We’ll have plenty of co-ed events in the future. This one’s just for the ladies!
Will the route be easy to navigate?
UPDATED: Yes! While terrain may vary, we’ll be using an ARROWED style of navigaton, where we will place an arrow to indicate an upcoming turn.
We’ll have a Lead Rider and our Sweep, with all riders being kept track of in between so no one gets lost and everyone has a safe ride.
If you want, we can load a GPS if you have one but not required.
Where will we sleep?
You can choose between hotels, pubs or camping in Gulgong.
Do I need to carry extra fuel?
There’s no need to carry extra fuel, but do make sure you have a minimum fuel range of 140 km.
Will there be support riders?
Yes, we’ll have a full sweep crew who are happy to help out at any point along the ride. Feel free to ask for technical advice or help!
What if I break down?
Our support vehicles will be at your service should you have any trouble. No woman left behind!
Will there be many riders?
We’ll have a great group of women riders ranging from newbies to experts, plus a handful of other riders to help anyone who may need extra coaching or pointers.
I’m a little hesitant because I feel my riding skills aren’t up to snuff. Is that okay?
Of course! This is a fully supported ride, with a wide range of technical levels, so don’t be shy. We’ll offer support and technical advice whenever you want it.
But I don’t have anyone to go with!
No problem! You’ll make new riding friends who share your joy of the open road.
Is there any way I can prepare ahead of time?
