Sweet N' Sour Details
Rolling XC-style singletrack. A singletrack alternative to get you off Pipeline Rd when coming back from the Hill Rd. track networks.
Sweet & Sour is all about momentum as it drops and climbs and winds its way through the bush.
It can be ridden slowly but if you can keep the speed up you are A) going to whip your mates and B) make the whole experience one to cherish.
It does climb slightly overall, with a short pinch climb towards the end.
This is a well drained trail so is a good one to hit if the weather is wet.
Starts from very close to the top of Nice Rd. But as part of the Chinese Menu group of trails it is most often accessed by riding Spring Roll first. Spring Roll starts from Hill Rd, very close the the Shuttle pick up point, and delivers you straight into Sweet N' Sour.
