2015 Windhoek Light Namib Quest Update No.3Dear Quest Riders,
Looking forward to greeting old and new faces next week! It would appear that we will have a dry Quest this year, up till now we have been dealt the odd downpour during past events. At this stage rain is not predicted. Do take note to pack some warm items for the evenings, it can get rather chilly, specially early morning!
Route download: Attached below please find the GPX file covering the entire 6 stages. You can download this to most Garmin applications such as Garmap / Basecamp as well as other similar applications. Once downloaded you can sync your GPS with the application and download the route onto your GPS device. Not to worry if you having problems with this, we will be able to assist you at registration.
N.B..it is highly advised that at least one of your team members has a GPS, in order to verify you being on the correct path, ever so often. Route will be clearly marked, however it can happen, in the pain of the moment, that you miss a vital marker, resulting in you going on to explore more of Namibia than you intended!!
Bike support: Trust you have all taken the time to approach one of the service providers to discuss your bike packages. Attached is a questionnaire which can be used to provide further details to the service providers.
Please note that registration will take place from 12:00 on Saturday till 16:30, at which stage we will do the welcome and event briefing. Sunday morning, 7:00am “sign on” with start scheduled for 8am. First section of the route on the western By Pass will be a controlled section i.e. no racing & staying in a group, once the turn off to the Kupferberg pass is reached, then it’s your own pace.
Airport Shuttle: There has been several request for airport shuttles on arrival / departure. Our shuttle service is only from the end point back to Windhoek, dropping of at the Windhoek Country Club & Resort. Should you be looking for a reliable airport shuttle then the following email address can be used to book: firstname.lastname@example.org
Good luck for your last preparations and should you be traveling, please do so safely!!
