“A great collection of biking trails with awesome coastal views!”
— Adrian Owen
Enjoy seven trails all tied into a loop. The best views can be seen from the access path and then riders will head into a pine forest to play on some clay soil singletrack. There's also a stunning vista of Raglan Bar from halfway up Mr. C's Groove
. Since this is a pretty short loop, it's easy to ride it over again before heading home.
Need to Know
- For more information and bike hire see Dirk at Cyclery Ragan.
- Great to tie in with a surf at one of Raglans world famous point breaks.
Start with a climb from the car park up to Hateful 80
. Part way up you'll pass the exit of Alley Oop
on the left, so make sure to keep right. At the top of the rise, drop into Alley Oop
for some sweeping corners and a few pump jumps before looping back around.
From there, Mr. C's Groove
takes riders up to the higher and more advanced trails. Rope a Dope
kicks off another loop with fast banked turns and a nice average descent of around 10.5%.
Head back up to the top of Rope a Dope
, but this time take Aunt Betty
. Work up through the trees and then get ready for a number of table-top jumps and a steep drop towards the end on Denny and Benny
