where did those climbs come from?
I don't remember seeing them in the draft maps :(
oooooooo I think loop 2 takes in some of this years BUPA ride - that was a magic leg.
Hmm so who is right, a cat 3 climb at an average of 3.5% does that sound right for cat 3?
depends on the distance, but at 3.5% I wouldn't have thought so. I was surprised to see a cat 5 climb on there - does that even exist in the rest of the world or was it something made up for all the flat places?
It looks like a good challenge either way, wouldnt mind doing both loops, I better start earning my leave pass points :-)
The maps are up on the site so you can both compare them
Loop 1 looks very challenging
Loop 1 is Galwer Wheeler country for sure we ride those roads all the time. Kent road is a long climb but nothing to hard. I didnt do the last GS but it sounded a lot more challenging. Im really looking forward to this one.
At this stage I intend riding from home which will put me over the 200km for the day cool!!
Sounds like a plan Stan. :)
Does this mean your in then Pete. I say we go via Galwer and normal GW route to Williamstown. I did a quick mock route and it was 33km shouldnt take that long.
Yea, Im in.
