Scenic yet challenging
|This is a scenic yet challenging route that offers intermediate riders a taste of all that Classic mountain biking is really about over a shorter distance of 26 km. Challenging but easily attainable – if you’ve done your homework! This 25 km route is independent of the 50 km Classic route. It will give riders who are in the transition between shorter and Classic rides some insight into the bigger league. The ride traverses a combination of open forestry roads and rough forest tracks interspersed with more technical (rocky) single track and some fast open down- hills.|
