Transiberica is a free-route event. The riders must ride from the start to the finish line visiting all mandatory Checkpoints and parcours following their own route.

Ask local people, use your GPS device or find the route with your mobile…but don’t call home or any base-camp. This is self-sufficiency, use your own power and resources to find the right way.

Try to fix it by yourself. If this is not possible go to a bike shop using any kind of transport, and after the repair go back to the same point you took the transport from.

It is prohibited to book services that you will use in Badlands before the start, this includes accommodation. Everything you need during the event can only be booked by your once it starts.

If we had to use one word to describe the Iberian Peninsula we would choose Diversity:
. Climate: In the warmer months in southern and inland areas you’ll probably ride exceeding 40º, but at night the temperature could descend to a few degrees above zero. The weather is less harsh in coastal regions, and colder and wetter in North.
. Population: It is markedly higher in coastal regions. Considerer for your self-support plan that in some inland regions of the Peninsula you will find the lowest population density in Europe…even lower than in Lapland.
. Orography: Spain is the second most mountainous country in Europe after Switzerland…despite almost 50% of its Mainland by the Central Plateau.
. Culture: The Iberian Peninsula has been for centuries the home of many different civilizations such as celts, romans, germanic kingdoms or muslims, so these influences are part of its languages, traditions, gastronomy or architecture.

. Cycling: Secondary road conditions and traffic in Spain, Portugal and Andorra are perfect for cycling, even at night.
. Food & drink: Villages exceeding 200 people usually have a fountain where you can get water. It´s also likely there will be bar where you can select options from a daily menu.
. Language: You should be able to communicate in English in Portugal, Andorra and in coastal regions of Spain.

Bilbao is one of the most populous cities in Spain, with a metropolitan area roughly 1 million inhabitants. The Bilbao Airport is the largest airport in northern Spain and the Basque Country, at only 7km from the city center and well connected by bus. Bilbao is also connected to UK by ferry.
