A beast of a ride, but oh what a magnificent one! The distance of 20 miles might sound short, but there is almost as much hike-a-bike on this ride as there is riding. Why bother then? Because each and every one of the four descents will ensure you forget instantly about the climb to reach them, and finish giggling and whooping for more! Spectacular views and a real mountain journey. This is a serious ride with highly technical descents suitable only for experienced riders. You should be comfortable and used to riding all kinds of steep, technical, natural mountain terrain in the UK and abroad (otherwise you will find yourself walking the descents as well as the climbs), and have an excellent level of fitness to enjoy a full-on day of riding. Once committed there are no options for bailing out half way round if your legs are tired!
