2021 #RideCMBA Nosehill long loop. This loops showcases some of better trails on all sides of Nosehill hooked up with mostly fast flowy single track (some sections of double track). This loop intentionally throws in several descents+climbs to make it overall more interesting and more of a workout. If you're getting tired near the end of this clockwise loop, it is possible to skip Roots of All Evil, as the climb up Borderclimb can be pretty exhausting after doing much before this point. Hope you like it
