FAQS

BIKEPACKING, AUTOABASTIMENT I AVENTURA

La modalitat de bikepacking és un tipus de cicloturisme amb BTT o gravel que combina la bicicleta i l’acampada (tot i que un cop inscrits s’enviarà un document que us ajudarà a trobar llocs per passar la nit). Es busca el contacte amb la natura i l’aventura . És una modalitat minimalista que vol viatjar amb allò estrictament just i necessari.

Al ser d’autoabastiment, no es podrà rebre ajuda externa i cada participant s’haurà de portar i gestionar el seu menjar i material, si que és permès comprar menjar i tot el necessari durant el recorregut.

L’organització recomana no pedalar de nit i sols ja que hi ha alguns camins inhòspits on pot ser difícil la detecció i salvament dels accidentats. En cas de pedalar de nit i sol, s’haurà de facilitar un mètode de seguiment a l’organització a través de Garmin Connect o Strava Beacon i portar carregador extern de bateria per tenir bateria al mòbil i al gps.

Una vegada inscrits, es pot sol·licitar a l’organització un document amb el quilometratge, el desnivell acumulat i pobles que anirem trobant per a poder-se gestionar els descansos. 4 dies abans de la cursa es donarà el recorregut en gps més precís amb els controls de pas.

ON DESCANSAR

En el bikepacking tothom és lliure de descasar on vulgui. Qui vulgui aturar-se al ras pot fer-ho, però es donarà un llistat amb albergs, refugis o hotels on es podrà descansar per preus molt reduïts. Serà cada participant qui haurà de gestionar-se l’allotjament.

Al Ripollès i al Berguedà l’allotjament no hauria de ser un problema, però aquells que vulguin passar la nit a la Garrotxa, les places potser són més limitades. En tot cas potser hauran  de sortir uns kilòmetres de la ruta.

LA BICICLETA

Aquest any la Catalunya Trail serà molt més rodadora i ciclable. El recorregut es pot fer amb BTT o gravel encara que amb les bicicletes gravel recomanem unes cobertes de 40 mm. o més i una transmissió de 34/36 plats x 40/42 pinyons.

ALLOTJAMENT

A la Catalunya Trail no gestionem allotjament, però hem intentat buscar una ruta que pugui oferir facilitats per aquells que no vulguin dormir en tenda o fer bivac al més pur estil bikepacking.

Una vegada inscrits, poden posar-se en contacte amb l’organització a l’email catalunyabiketrail@gmail.com perquè se’ls enviï un document més detallat amb possibles refugis, albergs i allotjaments per a passar la nit.
