Great condition.

I always ride this segment uphill (reverse of the arrows), it’s a fairly even, enjoyable switchback climb, and finishes at the top of a nice DH on Bastard.

This is my favourite segment in this area. It is bedding down nicely as time goes on and some great work has gone into it recently to smooth out the few scary bits.
Bastard Climb

I always ride this segment DH - a nice gravelly descent at pace. Watch for deep ruts in the last bit. Climbing it is a boring slog.
