* Grading and Measurements

Grade 1/5 - Moderate

Grade 1 routes are great if you are new to cycling as these routes are usually shorter and flatter.

Grade 2/5 - Challenging

If you are new to cycling but want a challenge, Grade 2 routes will offer a rolling route with some challenging aspects.

Grade 3/5 - Difficult

If you are a regular cyclist and looking for a challenging event that won’t break the legs a Grade 3 is the event for you. Usually around 3000-4000 ft of climbing over a middle distance route.

Grade 4/5 - Hard

Grade 4 events are for regular, experienced cyclists. Typically routes of a longer distance with challenging climbs included. Training for Grade 4 events is recommended.

Grade 5/5 - Very Hard

Grade 5 routes are not for the faint hearted. They will include very hard climbs, usually over a longer distance. It is recommended to train for events such as these to ensure you are fully prepared. Only a handful of events will have a Grade 5.
