23.6km give or take with just shy of 600 meters of total ascent. All riders will start off on the same road section (vehicular traffic is low) until you reach a long/short split. Long riders will head off-trail and begin their gradual climb - consider this loop #1, you will eventually rejoin the short riders to continue onto loop #2. There is a bit of everything - single and double-track, fruit orchards, rutty descents if you're brave and a little section where lugging the bike will be necessary. We won't lie - with all the rain, there is a bit of mud to deal with but relatively mild.
This is NOT a scenic ride and thus, not suitable for kids (sorry folks). Roughly 15.3km in distance and approximately 300 meters of total ascent. At the long/short split, you will continue on-the-road for a bit further until finally venturing off-trail onto loop #2. You will pass thru fruit orchards, be up-close-and-personal with a bird's nest enclosure and have some brilliant views to soak in.
NO HELMET, NO RIDE!!
Bring 3 liters of water and some energy snacks
No sweepers, if you go off-paper, you are on your own
Don't pick the fruits from the orchards puhleeze.
