A TIME TRIAL – Day 5, The legendary North Shore will be executed in a Time Trial format; Riders will be released in small timed intervals. Though short in length, the burly nature of the North Shore makes these kilometers technical.
A classic roll out along the scenic Indian River Road before climbing up the Baden Powell trail to the Upper Old Buck. This will take riders upwards quickly to the first descent: Corkscrew, PINGU, after which the climbing carries on, double track to the power lines, and its the now famous first BCBR descent: Upper Severed D, Baden Powell, across After Taste and into Forever After and finally High School, the total on this descent is nearly 4km’s long.
From here you will wind your way upwards through some residential neighborhoods, an easy way to gain some elevation and rest your body. Once we plunge back into the forest the fun begins again – as you cross the first bridge the tech-gnar is on; Bridal Path across to the Academy Trail starts your second climb, R and T Connector, then Pussy Foot all taking you to the amazing climb of the Good Sir Martin Trail. Revel in the beauty of the forest around you – this is how hand-made trails should be. When the climb flattens out, you turn right onto the new revamped Jon Deere trail (thanks Martin and Penny for all the amazing work) pump, flow and enjoy this is heaven. Once you hit the bottom you will turn left onto the rough Bridal Path, then right down a fast and scary Empress Bypass – all the way home for another great celebration.
