"Dear Di, Thank you very much for such an excellent training opportunity, your input is highly appreciated. I have previously attended other training camps but none can be compared to the Daytrippers, you guys are in a league of your own, well done. Please let me know if the second training camp planned for 17-21 January will take place, I would love to attend again. Greetings to all."
Kind Regards

After the huge success of the training rides in years past for Cape Epics, Day Trippers will again be offering 4 days of excellent training, incorporating key stretches of the Cape Epic route for 2017. This is open to Epic & non-epic riders alike.

Itinerary to be advised after route reveal in September 2017

NB: TRANPORT OF BIKES

For upcountry riders that are flying in: We will not be able to carry bike boxes along with us on this trip, as space is at a premium. Riders who are flying into CT can send their bikes to us with Star Express. They will collect the bike from your house, bubble wrap it, which requires no dismantling & bring it here. We will bring it up on our trailer. They will pick it up from us again at the end and return it to your home - no mess, no fuss and no need for un-boxing and boxing either end.

BIKES MUST BE CLEARLY LABELLED WITH RIDER’S NAME & ADDRESS and must reach us preferably 2 days before departure, latest the day before.

Please contact: Damon 011-9740085
damon@starexpress.co.za

**NOTE:

Please do not be daunted by the distances. This is NOT the Epic and you are not compelled to ride all the way. We will have a support vehicle along with us and there will be options to shorten your ride on every day (we always have some riders who do this).

The objective of the camps is to give you a good sense of what to expect on the Epic and an idea of where you are in terms of your training. You will either leave feeling thoroughly confident that you are on track or you will have a clear idea of what you still need to do to get yourself up to speed.
