RINGERS REST – RINGERS REST
SUNDAY, 18 OCTOBER 2020
76 km + 1900 vm
This stage is a non technical winding dirt road that ascends and descends the beautiful Mount Edith contained within the Danbulla Forest National Park.
After a short rolling section you begin the first of three major climbs. The first will have you climbing approx. 13km at an average 7-8 % gradient.
You can then look forward to a long fun and fast decent of 12km through the beautiful National Parks with picturesque scenery overlooking the Tablelands and getting glimpses of the sparkling Lake Tinaroo.
Then you begin the second climb which will take you up the other side of Mount Edith. With similar terrain and gradient to the first climb this one is around 7km long. After cresting this beautiful climb you will have a short decent before beginning the third and final climb of around 4km before another long decent of 13km. The last 12km are the same as the first back to Ringers Rest.
The climbs through the National Park are beautiful but tough. However for the non climbers, remember “what goes up must come down”!
Once again you return to the beautiful Ringers Rest bush camp where you will be treated to hearty and delicious food and a rest in the Aussie bush, knowing you’ve completed one quarter of the stage plan.
