Cycling Information
On this tour we cycle 306 km over six days (an average of 51 km per day). The roads are extremely quiet and the terrain is nicely varied; including flat and hilly sections with some steep ascents and descents. The ride on day 5 is mainly ascent - over the course of the day we climb 1288m (option to reduce to 800m ascent or opt out). Considering none of the rides are particularly long, we have graded the route as moderate to challenging.
