Meet the locals, discuss your cunning plans and gear list, size up the competition (not that’s a race of course,) beg for stuff you may have forgotten, have a stiff one to knock off the nerves, have a nice big feed for the weekend, buy the Flahute stuff.
Collect your SPOTs, get a lesson on how to use them and the best place to wear them. Get some last minute advice for your Garmin…
Thanks to the team at Good Rotations for hosting us, they will have tunes and a workshop (if you need it), look out for the SPOTNZ flag.
Bring some beverages and food and hang out.
The Wandering Star is a bikepacking brevet event happening in/near Wanaka on 5-6 November.
