A lovely route for the scenery rather than the ride. Did it anti clockwise but there are some prolonged steep climbs in both directions. Check your brake pads before doing this, it's fast on the way down.

Non technical ride, lots of elevation gain. We rode clockwise, a long uphill with some hike-a-bike sections but a fun decent. Would do again.
