Cycle Route




Although this is a difficult ride it can be achieved by all cyclists in good physical health. You will have to walk at times to reach the top (particularly during the first two miles of the Old Coach Road itself) as the track is steep and rocky but the views are worth the effort. The area becomes remote and you are recommended to have at least the following equipment. Equipment: Good tool kit for spares & repairs, including inner tubes to deal with snakebite punctures (caused by hitting a sharp rock splitting the inner tube against the rim). Mountain bike with front suspension for comfort! Shoes with a good tread. Water bottle and snacks.
