This is a disused jeep track that many regard as a point of honour to ride during the season without putting a foot down. It's not technical, it's just very steep. Very steep. Four significant tough pitches after the power line that will leave you gasping for air. If you think you've got what it takes join the annual P9 race, always held at 1900 on 9/ 9. The winning up time is well under 15 minutes...

Access Info

Ride up the Island Lake Road and look for a yellow gate on the right with the Project 9 signage
