Altitude Profile (1,894 ft to 2,790 ft)
In all honesty, for some reason many of the participants anticipated an easy days ride... it was a tough push up some steep hills in many places, and the "hooting" downhills had gradients over 20% and were fun for me, but scary for novice riders.
The first km is great fun if you had space to ride, but the pack was a bit prohibitive.
The next 8km is on the highway sealed road, with a steep climb, and a flying downhill.
From 15kms to 17.5kms it is mostly walking really. grades upwards of 15% in many places.
20-23km all downhill, and brakes disks were bright blue for the first km.
The last 9 km was relatively short climbs, some getting off the bike for those running out of energy, and a general climb made this a pretty tough finish.
The last 2-3kms is on a flat straight gently rising gravel road.
