UCI World Cup trail at Dalby Forest

A seriously challenging route not for the faint hearted

This is a technical world-class course, only for the best and most expert. There are many steep climbs and challenging descents, including the very rapid descent on Medusa's Drop. The tour starts at Adderstone's Field, passes High Staindale and eventually comes back near the starting point at Dixon's Hollow, using portions of the Red Route on the way. It is a memorable experience, but it sure is a tough course!
