Oodnadatta Track tour 2018

Postby Dibbsy » Wed Sep 20, 2017 9:49 pm

I am considering running a MTB tour along the Oodnadatta track. The tour would be supported by 4wd . I am looking for up to 10 riders to join the beta trip next year
If anybody is interested in hearing more about this trip and maybe interested in the ride please join the topic

Will the 4WD be carrying the riders luggage? If so there needs to be a ratio of riders per 4WD. 10 riders into 1 4WD won't go.

Hey Dibbsy,

sounds good so far, what sort of timeframe are you thinking of? from Clare to Marree is 500k so there's 4 - 5 days before you get to the Oodnadatta track.

My last trip with a friend started at Marree, through to Marla, back down through Coober Pedy and the Painted desert for a total of 1000k avg around 100k/day very doable. Flies were unbelievably thick :x - my butt was unbelievably sore and I had to stop short :oops: , there's no escape when you're out there but a support car would make a world of difference :)

Also keen to get an idea of what part of the year you're thinking of - i'm still working full time so forward planning is required so I can notify work and make arrangements, also have some other ideas for trips so working out how my leave can be best utilised because there's not enough of it to go around.

I'm in Adelaide - so keen to hear from anyone in the Adelaide/SA area interested in offroad bike pack tours.

Cheers
