This is an old trials motorcycle uptrack that has benefitted from some ongoing and desperately needed love (including rerouting and many new bridges) over the past couple of years. It can be fairly relentless in terms of the rider's requirement to manage brakes and pay attention. Steep sections with consequences and no ride arounds make this a very committing ride, but there is also stiff climbing, flowy rolling and a couple of short, mandatory hike-a-bikes. For skilled riders who love their tech, it's a pearl and aside from the hikes is rideable in its entirety. Note: Often braided and signage is virtually non-existant. When in the heat of the summer and everything else is blown to pieces give this one a go You will be pleasantly surprised. An absolute blast for experts.

       Labour of Love is an old trials motorcycle uptrack that has been lovingly tweaked over the past couple of years with solid woodwork and some great alternatives. Signage is virtually non-existent, making access a bit of an adventure. There are 2 mandatory but short hike-a-bikes, several sections of steep tech, some beautiful granite and multiple spots where a fall could be really bad. Not for the faint of heart, but a definately a diamond in the rough.
