Whoever wishes to do this route should be very aware that its only really suitable for mountain bikes or hybrids (unless we went off road by mistake) and the hills were grueling to say the least. And leave yourself plenty of time. It took us a lot longer to do it than 3 hours.

As you will notice my club is Mountain biking, so you didn't go the wrong way, as for doing it on a road bike i give you credit, but doing this on a road bike would of made the ride a little easier,there are some gruelers on the route, but you do have to be a good hill climber or at least fit enough to do this route.

I hope you enjoyed the route, try doing it anticlock wise and see the difference.. all the best wayne, owner of Allterrain Mountain Bike club.
