MANIFESTO

The Transibérica Ultracycling events are conceived to be a personal adventure, a collective ride.

This project is based on our personal experiences in similar events such us The Transcontinental Race and Trans Am Bike Race and randonneur events such us PBP and LEL.

Transibérica Ultracycling is designed from our deep love to Cycling, Ultracycling, Bikepacking, Self-sufficiency and all values conveyed through Mike Hall and his legacy.

SELF-SUFFICIENCY

This is bikepacking, our essence. This means food, drink and belongings must be carried by the riders or acquired unplanned en-route.

The external assistance or a virtual base-camps is prohibited, although unrequested help en-route is allowed.

ONE STAGE NON STOP

These are one stage events. This means once it starts the time doesn’t stop, even while the rider is resting, what makes the strategy and the self-knowledge essential for the event.

LIVE EVENT TRACKING

Our riders must carry the satellite tracker provided, this will make possible to everyone to follow the event on the official website and social networks.

NAVIGATION

Our events can be Set-Route or No-Route. In this last case the riders must visit all mandatory checkpoints and parcours to validate their Brevet Card following their own way.

It is strongly recommended a deep study of the local orography, cities, weather, traditions and a strong adaptive capacity.

NO DISTINCTIONS

No male, no female, no junior, no senior…just riders.

NO DRAFTING

Riders are not allowed to draft other cyclists during the event unless they participate as a pair.

SAFETY AND RESPONSIBILITY

Our events are on open roads. The riders must know, observe and comply with local traffic laws.

The helmet, front and rear lights and a reflective vest at night are mandatory.

HONORABLE AGREEMENT

The honorable agreement is inherent to bikepacking events.

The organization can apply time penalties based on evidences, but only the riders by themselves can ensure a fair event.
