Labour Weekend 2014 -
Heartland Discovery Adventure Tour
24th/25th/26th                             - 12 Places Taken so Far

This Regions hosts large festivals over the October Labour Weekend, and as such accommodation was extremely scarce and also extremely expensive with surcharges and other add ons.  When we originally planned this Tour we thought to keep numbers small owing to the large kms that this Tour will cover,  both on and off road terrain.  This number being reached earlier than expected it then became difficult to obtain reasonable priced additional accommodation.  For the 2014 Season we have now secured accommodation for 40 bed spaces, so we are well covered.

Our Heartland Tour will cater for Intermediate to Advanced Level Riders and will offer large km riding days over our weekend in this Region.

Places are filling fast for our October visit 2014
This Tour suitable for Intermediate to Advanced levels
