The organizer reserves the right to cancel the event in case of low participation therefore please RSVP as soon as you know you want to join.
Most likely we will go in at least one car from Geneva so a shuttle including bikes is available. The number of places in the car is limited so contact the organiser asap to reserve your place (regular fuel contribution per trip consumption) and if you come with a car and have spare places you are willing to offer to riders with bikes please let the organisers know.
Please make sure you have a complete change of clothes (clean shoes, shorts and a T-shirt) for the car after riding. That is essential if you forget, be prepared to travel in the boot, wearing a bin bag ;P .
Andrew will most likely depart on Friday evening about 19:00 and camp locally for an easy start. Then camp on Sat evening in Verbier for an easy start on Sunday ride and come back on Sunday evening. You are welcome to join if camping does suits you.
