A epic challenge route designed for intermediate to advanced gravel riders. A variety of terrain ranging from gravel roads to gnarly unmaintained roads, single track and quiet country roads.
This is an adventure route that requires appropriate fitness, preparation and skill.
Total actual elevation is closer to 4000m rather than the lower value estimated by RWGPS.
Pack appropriate food, electrolytes, clothing layers, an extra pair of socks, 1 front & 2 back lights, a small power pack, tire patch, spare tube, levers, quick link, mini first aid and a paper shop towel ( More on that later), and possibly a tiny bathing suit etc. Expect lot’s of climbs and come prepared for a challenge.
The route is R rated for “Rad” but it’s about having fun along the way.
