MANIFESTO

Badlands is conceived to be a personal challenge, a collective adventure.

Badlands is designed from our deep love to Cycling, Bikepacking, Self-sufficiency and all values conveyed through Mike Hall and his legacy.

SELF-SUFFICIENCY

The food, drink and belongings must be carried or acquired unplanned en-route. The external assistance or a virtual base-camps is prohibited, although unrequested help en-route is allowed.

Riders are not allowed to draft other cyclists unless they participate as a pair.


ONE STAGE NON STOP

Once Badlands starts the time doesn’t stop, even while the rider is resting, what makes the strategy and the self-knowledge essential for the event.


LIVE EVENT TRACKING

The riders must carry a satellite tracker, this will make possible to everyone to follow Badlands on the official website and social networks.

NAVIGATION

The riders must follow the mandatory route.

It is strongly recommended a deep study of the local orography, cities, weather, traditions and a strong adaptive capacity.


SAFETY AND RESPONSIBILITY

Our events are on open roads. The riders must know, observe and comply with local traffic laws. The helmet, front and rear lights and a reflective vest at night are mandatory.


HONORABLE AGREEMENT

The honorable agreement is inherent to bikepacking events. The organization can apply time penalties based on evidences, but only the riders by themselves can ensure a fair event.
