34k. The Mach 3 really takes you into the wilds. Expect long climbs & challenging descents. An average rider should complete in 3 to 3.5 hours

 I would agree with muletron above.

The description of this route is inaccurate. It should read: "34km of disappointment. The Mach 3 really takes you into the wilds. Expect long climbs & poor short descents with barely any singletrack. Most of the time you will be bored as you climb on doubletrack. An average rider should complete in 3.5-4 hours."

My advice - don't bother. It was a nice afternoon out in some reasonably decent countryside but that was about it.
