  • Epic experience riding to the top of this iconic climb, breathtaking views once at the top. However you can park at the top if you don’t fancy the ride there is a cafe and small shop selling lots of merchandise, drinks etc they accept card payment also. There is also a pick and mix stalls and one selling meats.
  • Happy Mountain. Full of cyclists and all types of car/bike enthusiasts. Cold and windy mostly, at the top. Usually sweet stalls. (Cafes are below)
  • Cycling nirvana, one of the top 5 rides to complete ever. Best route is from Bedion. Some real best of sections after a few KM's
  • the mountain was too high. Could you please lower it for my ability next time? I wore a singlet yet it was still too cold.you guys need better air conditioning. it was also too rocky on this mountain... so you guys might want to fix that. sincerely, Ken M. p.s i got a 89% on my iq test, so i know what im talking about.
  • It's a marvelous mountain
