ACCOMMODATION

joBerg2c provides a fully-supported race and amazing race villages. You’ll have your own tent if you’re riding solo, or you’ll share with your team mate. All you need to bring is a pillow and a sleeping bag.

However, we know that some will make use of the many B&B’s along the way. If you do decide to plan some of your own logistics, please understand we are unable to cater for supporters in the race villages.

Many of our schools and villages offer alternative accommodation to tents at their venue. From school hostels to luxury tents, this offers an awesome alternative to being in tents all week. A full list can be found here.

Below is a list of B&Bs for you to contact. Note the following:

  • joBerg2c does not take any responsibility for the quality of the B&Bs
  • You must arrange your own transport to and form the B&B’s.
