Ride Like a Grrl

MTB XC , Aviemore – Saturday, 27 Sep 2014

Event Summary

Event Overview

The Adventure route will be 25-30km and we believe it to be achievable by mountain bikers with basic off road riding skills.   It will be a challenge for riders new to biking and a blast for more experienced riders.  It will include singletrack and small obstacles of root and rock.  The gradient will be mostly moderate but will include steep sections.  A good standard of fitness will help.
 
The longer, more technical Epic route takes you on to more technical sections and will be 35-40km with more total ascent.  This route is for proficient mountain bikers with moderate off road skills and a good quality mountain bike.  The route will be steeper and tougher than the Adventure, and with more singletrack with rocky and rooty sections.  There will be a wide range of climbs and descents of a challenging nature. A good standard of fitness and stamina will be needed.

You will need a mountain bike to complete both routes.  As some of the route is on public footpaths there will be a strict no bell no go policy.
