Q. Do I have to complete my fundraising before the trip?
A. Yes! The deadline to complete your fundraising is 20 May 2019.

Q. Are airfares included?
A. No, you will need to get yourself to the start of the trip (Broome or Kununurra) and then make arrangements from the end of the trip (Kununurra or Broome).

Q. Is there a weight limit?
A. Australia Post have a weight limit that they set on the bikes. However, the weight limit is set to allow also for the carriage of mail. The bikes that we are utilising will not be carrying any luggage so providing the person is no heavier than 120kg, they should be ok.

Q. Are there toilets and showers at every campsite?
A. There are! The showers might not always be hot, depending on whether the hot water has been used up by other campers. The toilets all flush!

Q. Will I have phone reception?
A. It depends. Optus tends to get more service than any other network. There is a spot everyone gets reception between Ellenbrae and HVS where we stop for about 10 minutes and a group photo. There are also various spots along the way, where you can purchase internet credit (Mount Barnett, HVS, El Questro)

Q. Will my meals be catered for?
A. Yes! All your meals will be catered for.  You do however, have the option of purchasing your own meal at HVS and El Questro. We will need to know in advance should you choose to purchase your meals there.
