MY FITNESS LEVEL…
I’m relatively fit and am comfortable with hills that are less than half a mile in length. I want to ride on my vacation, but not every day.

I ENJOY…
Slight inclines, but like it to be mostly flat. I also don’t mind hopping in the support van when I’ve ridden enough.

MY AVERAGE DAY ON THE BIKE…
Around 1-2 hours of riding each day. I can ride about 10 – 15 kms, and up to 20 kms on a long day.

I’M COMFORTABLE CLIMBING…
Shorter climbs and small hills. Less is ok with me. About 300 feet of climbing.

FOR MOUNTAIN BIKE TRIPS…
My fitness level: I am comfortable on 1-3 hour rides at an easy pace, of 6-17 kms in length with manageable short climbs throughout. I exercise about one day a week.

My skill level: I have some experience riding a mountain bike and can easily control speed and direction on pavement, double-track roads and some smooth singletrack.

MY FITNESS LEVEL…
I ride my bike on a regular basis either for fitness, to commute to work, or just for fun. I enjoy an active lifestyle with an occasional physical challenge.

I ENJOY…
Rolling terrain with some bigger hills that are challenging. I feel great after reaching the top.

MY AVERAGE DAY ON THE BIKE…
Around 2-3 hours of riding each day. I can ride about 30 kms, and up to 50 kms on a long day.

I’M COMFORTABLE CLIMBING…
Steep rollers and short mountains, but with a few breaks in between. About 1,500 feet of climbing.

FOR MOUNTAIN BIKE TRIPS…
My fitness level: I am comfortable on 3-5 hour rides at a moderate pace, of 8-14 kms in length with a few short anaerobic climbs throughout. I get out for exercise about 3 days a week.

My skill level: I have some experience riding trails or off road terrain and have been mountain biking for at least one year. I can control my bike speed and direction on smooth trails and moderately uneven terrain, but often walk my bike when things get rocky or rooty.
