FITNESS LEVEL Fitness is a subjective thing, so it is difficult to set the fitness level required for each tour, each tour has an indicative fitness level assigned, but this may differ for different people. You should be confident that you can ride the indicated number of kilometres comfortably, we do not have a support vehicle, so we are unable to pick you up. The distance and terrain indicated are the minimum that this tour takes. Some tours allow flexibility to make the ride longer or more technical, if that's what you prefer.  If you have any specific query or issue, please email us for more detailed information. 

MINIMUM NUMBER of 2 applies to all tours
