The route is provisional - Changes can be made until a month before the race.
The route consists of 11 route segments and is an almost 1900 km long time trail - consisting of different kinds of road surfaces like asphalt (about 1790 km), gravel (about 100 km), cobblestone (about 1 km) and a small bit of sand. Click on each segment, below the map, to have it shown on the map. The route is divided into segments because of limitations to GPX files when uploaded to a bike computer. But it should be considered one long route.
Each segment has had cuesheet added for easier navigation on bike computers. You will find POIs on each segment - churches (for water) supermarkets, bike shops, some cafés, some pharmacies, public pools (for showers), some water taps, commercial caravan parks, free shelters, free tenting areas - and some warnings about longer distances without shops and water.
