When you only have 1 shuttle, and you want to make the most of it, take The Long Way Down.
Mostly downhill, taking in sections of Razorback, Star Lake, Pigasus, Mercury Road Access, Charlotte's Web and the Pierce Hofer Memorial Wallride to finish, its a fantastic mix of technical downs, moderate short climbs and easy cruising flats, with more viewpoints than you can handle.
If this isn't enough down for you, check out the NKDF Enduro route, or if you're looking for more climbs and distance, check out the Full Perimeter route (50km - ish).
