GCN Tour: Valley of the Tears

Highlights

Come and see the roads GCN (Global Cycling Network) showcased in their enthralling video, shot during their visit in early 2018. However, we feel doing their lap in reverse makes a lot more sense...! This way you have the opportunity to test your mettle against the 25% slopes of the infamous Valley of the Tears, and gain a worthy tick on the bucket list of any aspiring climbing enthusiast. The back of the climb is broken once past a small goat farm about half way up the fabled ascent, and offers a chance to take stock of the many metres of altitude gained in short time. Additionally, the following descent is much gentler and on smooth roads, before we return to the shuttle to take us home!

See GCN´s video below!
