read the WARNING ~ don't sign up unless you are serious | by serious we mean, crazy | by crazy we mean, perfect for this adventure


What type of bicycle do I need to ride this? riding on every type of terrain imaginable in the Triangle area of North Carolina. Look at it this way, if it's an outdoor surface, you'll travel across it at some point.

We don't give a damn if you ride a banana-seat Huffy or rock a $10,000 bike, as long as there is no engine or assist, come crank this event!

Google the terrain and plan accordingly.

No matter what bike you are on, at some point, you'll wish you were on a different bike. Everyone will.

Is there a minimum age requirement to enter the event? must be 21+ years old on the first date of the event to enter | no exceptions ever

What can I bring on the race? we don't care about most things | these things you must bring

How can I contact the organizer with any dumb questions? email | yes, there are dumb questions

What's the refund policy? no refunds | if we reject you for any reason, we'll refund you in full, maybe even give you $5 extra so you can get a beer to go cry | this race is simply not for everyone | read the warning | this is serious shit | don't do things you are not equipped to do | even if trained and well-experienced, you may not have ever done this type of crazy | riding this is dangerous | riding where we'll be sending you is absurd

Is my registration fee transferrable? due to the nature of this event ~ no | we may, let you transfer to the following year | we'll share your entry fee as beverages with the riders that do show up | we may drink a toast to you at the finish line but, probably not

What the heck is manduro | why should anyone enter? an adventure race on two wheels that feels like a thru-hike, a gravel grinder, an urban exploration, a rural expedition, and a bike-packing trip all in one | it is not a scavenger hunt | go to the website and read.

What else? obviously, by entering, you, your associates, your sponsors, your support, your friends and your family hold harmless and release anyone and everyone involved from any form of legal action. Note: you could get injured | you could die | you could get divorced | poison ivy | ticks | snakes | anything can happen

By signing up, you release us, hold us harmless, give up rights to pursue legal action and agree you are in the right mind, body, and spirit to attempt manduro: a grueling bicycle adventure | acknowledging your own idiocy is the first step | "us" is originovel llc and its officers, employees, and volunteers
