location

Mentougou

This week's ride in Mentougou is a fair way to the West of the city. It's well worth the trip to explore these back roads. Parts of the course are on narrow concrete roads and travel through villages that seemed to have completely stood still in time. The mountains are still bare and combined with the rocky cliffs in the area create a magnificent backdrop.

The B and C riders will ride the same course however the C riders will be driven the first 15km in the vans. The A riders should be excited by their course (squint your eyes and check out the route map).
