Start/Finish: Colonial Brewery
Prepare yourself to be amazed as you twist and turn through the magical flowing trails of Middle Earth. Starting at the cosy property of Colonial Brewery, riders will head out on a mixture of roads, access tracks and some narrower trails as they head north and keep the pace high. The trail narrows and riders will reach the rabbit warren of singletrack goodness known as Middle Earth which has it all with berms, jumps, log overs, flowing corners and much more!
Twisting and turning for kilometre after kilometre Middle Earth unfortunately will come to an end, popping out on to an access trail will allow riders to have a mini recovery before they turn the pace back up. Another varying mixture of trails will have riders flying along as they head back towards Colonial where an icy cold, refreshing beverage awaits!
