Fitness and Skill Grading Chart

There are two separate elements to the grading system, fitness and skill.                                                                                                                         Let us know the level you think you are and we will arrange a trail to suit your ability. 

Fitness Level

  • Level 1: Occasionally cycles at a leisurely pace for 1-2 hours and prefers flat trails with little climbing.
  • Level 2: Cycles more two or more times per week for 2-3 hours and likes rolling trails with some climbs.
  • Level 3: Cycles more than three times per week at a quick pace for 4 hours plus and is capable of riding demanding climbs.
