How much does it cost?

Many potential riders aren’t aware of the costs involved in participating in the Simpson Desert Bike Challenge.

Here is a ballpark estimate to give you an idea.

The SDBC does not get involved in financial negotiations between riders and their crews,  but it’s normal for the rider to cover the cost of fuel and food whilst the driver provides the vehicle.
