Event Difficulty Rating

Event Difficulty Rating

Due to the many contributory factors it is impossible to be absolutely precise about how difficult a cycle event will be. The main benefit of our “difficulty rating” is to provide you with an overall indicator as a guide from one cycling event against another. When assessing these ratings we consider the following;

  •     Number and difficulty of descends/ascents
  •     Climate event is taking place
  •     Terrain conditions

The majority of participants who take part in these events will not necessarily have done anything like this before. We will also be on hand every step of the way to provide training advice if needed and a full detailed information pack containing training tips will be issued following signed registration. We strongly recommend you train to appropriate levels for your chosen event to ensure maximum enjoyment.

Difficulty Rating Key

  1. Easy – no routes are entirely flat, so expect some minor undulating terrain
  1. Relatively Easy – slightly longer descends/ascents with occasional steeper spurts
  1. Moderate – longer days of saddle time with occasional steep descends/ascents
  1. Average Difficulty – a regular balance of undulating terrain with some difficult descends/ascents
  1. Hard – requires confidence in your descends/ascents ability and physical condition
  1. Challenging – confidence in fitness and technical ability is crucial
  1. Tough – long tough sections testing your ultimate fitness and stamina
  1. Extreme – difficult, very steep and long descends/ascents …a real challenge!
