NB: Road Cyclists and the Dirty Dudes start and finish at the same location each day, however their routes vary. In order to access the best 'off road' tracks the dirty dudes are occasionally transported to or from various locations. For exact course details for each ride, please go to the Ride Options page.
The ride comes to a close after lunch in Karumba on June 30. All riders must arrange their own accommodation for the 30th June. (The Karumba Recreation Hall can be accessed for those happy to ‘camp out’ or if you have been unable to secure accommodation).
