This is a wild ride over the highest part of the Black Mountains, reaching 700m and crossing some desolate country.
The western leg is grassy and smooth, with a long, steady climb up from the south and a fast descent. A twisting climb is followed by an 8km descent along rough singletrack and bumpy doubletrack. The final climb through the forest will be tough on tired legs, but the final descent from Crug Mawr is well worth it.
