Out of interest (only) how far between the two sites?
The distance between the two sites is 385km about 5 hours on a small bike taking the scenic route.
Would be great to meet up again.
Bikes are lightweight 250 but the riders !! not sure :whistle:
Looks interesting (thumbs)
Will's right, there are several nice back roads routes and it takes about five hours actual riding. The way we did it to Terriente on the big bikes a few years ago was somewhat arduous ...
Some of the trails are very arduous but there are plenty others - and the tough bits tend to be short!
@ WillS that new trail in the Pyrenees has slopes of about 1 in 4 that are 'surfaced' with boulders about the size and shape of grapefruit. Speighty put some video footage of this on his Facebook page but I can't seem to find these now ... basically the ladies had to get off and walk, up and down hills, while the chaps heroically rode - and fell off! - their bikes for them, several times! I waited at the top in the NIVA for over two hours for them to catch up over a stitch of about four kms!
