Description

Note: It's probably been a long ride - eat an energy snack if you are tired or low on energy.

If you've come this far down the Downieville Classic, you might be expecting (or welcoming) a relaxed final portion. The First Divide (lower portion) is rocky singletrack mostly along a rock edge, with a small bit of climbing. It's a short stretch, but technical in spots, so be particularly attentive. The difference here is that if you go off trail, it's a long way down.

This last portion puts you onto a paved road, which you'll follow mostly downhill about a mile back to Downieville.

Congrats, you've made it. Now grab your other car or a shuttle -- and repeat!
