RFID timing services will be provided by Toowoomba Triathlon Club.

This event is suitable for reasonably fit and experienced cyclists only. You need to be confident you can cycle 97 km off-road in under 8 hours.

Participants are expected to be self-sufficient, but there will a safety team shadowing the event to give assistance if required. Free water and great snacks will be available at 2 locations on the route.

Mobile phone, adequate water, a basic first aid kit including snake bite bandage, spare inner tube, a puncture repair kit and basic tools will be mandatory equipment. Participants can either carry food or obtain food at shops and cafes along the way.

Bicycles must be suitable for riding off-road – mountain bikes and cyclocross bikes are recommended.

There will be an optional hourly shuttle bus back to Esk from 11.00 am provided by Josie and David from Out There Cycling @ $30. Depending on numbers, we may also lay on a coach and semi-trailer. Please select the option to pre-pay whilst registering for this event - the option to add it is at the bottom of the check-out page.

If you're not sure if you need the shuttle bus, you can book it separately later.

For anyone wanting to make a week-end of it, there is excellent accommodation available in Esk and Yarraman.

As usual, you ride with us at your own risk.

Please note, if a severe weather event is predicted for 29 June, the BVRT 100 will be postponed and all participants offered a full refund or transfer your entry to the new date. A bit of rain is all part of the adventure. Thunder and lightning whilst out in the open countryside is just too dangerous.

During registration you will be required to accept our terms and conditions.
