Grade 4 Bike Tour

60% of this ride is on road. Some sections of pavement can be narrow have rough shoulders and be very potholed. Sharp twisites and blind corners with steep drop offs are the norm

40% of this ride is off road. All types of surfaces are to be expected, from loose shale to very steep ascent and descents through thick forests. Many dirt tracks are very winding with blind corners and massive drop offs. Some tracks can have very large potholes, loose deep gravel or be muddy depending on recent rainfalls. Creek crossings must also be expected.

Although the majority of ks is on road the majority of time is spent off road

Understanding The Tour Grade System

This ride grade system is a guide only and it should not be assumed that if a grade 4 ride, for example, is booked and a rider has had limited experience on dirt that it will be beyond them.

Likewise it should not be assumed that if a grade one ride is booked a rider is assured that no dirt will be ever encountered, governments love road works.
