Trail Grading System:
The idea is not to tell you what is good or bad, just a indication of
what kind of terrain
to expect, and the level of skill required to complete the trail safely.
You don't want to find yourself and Pillion, up the creek without a
paddle, but then again
that's part of the adventure.
Adopted from the International Mountain Biking trail grading system,
we have simplified
it to 3 levels:
for the most basic
Suitable with Pillion, 650cc, 800cc, 990cc, 1150cc, 1200cc all levels.
Mainly Tarred Road, Some Dirt Roads, No Sand, No River Crossings,
easy going and safe
for the more Adventurous
Suitable with Pillion, best without, 650cc, 800cc, 990cc, 1150cc,
1200cc requires more rider input, more skill.
Some Tarred Road, Mainly Dirt Roads, some Sand, maybe a River Crossings,
easy going and safe with a little more rider skill needed.
Very Adventurous, Technical, Singleriders only

750 - skilled riders.

Some routes may have
alternative splits with a harder grade for the more adventurous riders
in the group. GPS way points will normally indicate these options.
