The day will start climbing out of the Earl’s Cove Ferry terminal on pavement, a couple of km’s, then hit a dirt road that will take you fairly steeply up to Klein lake, followed by some steep downs and ups. A short distance after that you will find your way onto singletrack with some stunning views over Ruby lake. The course will then lead you onto the Sunshine Coaster trail that is like a double track but don’t let that fool you, there are many short punchy climbs that will test your legs. Just before the First Aid station you start getting into some tight singletracks and long bridges. Hwy to Hell has some amazing views of Pender Harbour; you will be in and out of singletrack and power lines from there until just before the second aid. You will climb Cabin Fever only half way to Deliverance past an old homestead and then you will drop back down to aid 2. A nice flat logging road to let you digest your snacks and then onto the new climbing trail Frogger (this trail was built in cooperation with the local Mountain Bike Club and the Sunshine Coast Community Forest) a bit more gravel road then back into the singletrack, making your way to the last climb up to the legendary VFR downhill, through the forests of the Sunshine Coast towards your base camp in Sechelt.
