'AT LAST LOST' is an adventure cycling and bikepacking experience. The seek for the true essence of cycling. We believe that the self-supported approach fits perfectly with the adventure cycling spirit. This isn't about how far you can go, but how deep is your experience. Instead of rules, we prefer to see this minimalist list as a manifesto:
1 | RESPECT THE LOCAL TRAFFIC RULES, THE COMMUNITIES AND THE ENVIRONMENT: We are a community who wants to build a positive legacy. The way you behave will shape how society and institutions will look to ultracycling and long-distance cyclists.
2 | REACH THE CHECK POINTS, RIDE SAFE & ENJOY: You can see the event designer as an artist and the location of Check Points and the event format as a piece of art. Trust in it and let yourself go. We will publish a list of forbidden roads due to the dangerous profile. The GPS live tracking will show your geographical position on the map and your tracker should always be on.
3 | NO THIRD-PARTY SUPPORT: This is about your personal experience and challenging your own limits. So make no sense to receive help from your family or friends with food, accommodation, mechanical support or geographical information (riders in the duo category can help each other). Sum up, you should use the commercial services available for all riders. If you have a mechanical problem you should solve it by your own. If you can’t solve it, you can use the commercial mechanical services available. Concerning navigation and route planning, you should use your knowledge, technology/apps and own means.
4 | NO DRAFTING: You can not follow other participants, cyclists or vehicles for aerodynamical advantages.
5 | USE YOUR OWN ENERGY: Just you and your bicycle - the greatest transport invention of all time (no e-bikes and no doping).
