Grading

Introductory to Moderate  
4

This trip is graded introductory to moderate and is suited to regular cyclists with a good level of fitness. E-bikes are suitable if ridden appropriately. There is a mix of introductory trails and moderate trails with some remote sections. The moderate trails have features such as switch backs, narrow tracks, hills, rocks, and tight turns. If you are not a regular cyclist or are worried about these features, practice riding on similar features at home or come back after having practiced on the Clutha Gold or Roxburgh Gorge Trail. You'll need to be comfortable riding 40-55km in one day including lunch and drink stops.
