An advanced ride with lots of mileage, climbing, and some gnarly downhills. The first 20 miles is a climb on mixed terrain from dirt road to forest with technical sections thrown in. The descent is pretty intense with a 10-mile rock garden section. A full suspension bike is highly recommended so you don't feel too roughed up by the end. Enjoy!
Start in Mateo and head west toward Lepaterique with a sustained 8+ KM climb past Monte Redondo
. From here, the route begins to head along a series of shorter climbs and descents as it bends back to the left (south) toward Sabana del Conejo on the Lepaterique Access Road
followed by the Sabana DH Trail
This is where the fun begins. The descents can be challenging with technical obstacles to ride over. Use your momentum and hold on. From the southernmost point of the route, the trail begins to climb again past the east end of Monte Redondo
along the Mateo Dirt Road
to a grand finale on the devilishly difficult Upare - La Llorona
. From there, head north to N-74
and then follow it to the right (west) back to where you started from.
