Cross Country Route

This is a grueling figure-of-eight route to test even the most seasoned riders with over 2,800 ft of climbing. But don’t be put off. The descent from the top of Slieau Whallian is a well earned reward for all you efforts!

Starting and finishing at the car park by the primary school in St John's, opposite the former Farmers Arms pub. Be aware if you have your bike on the roof of your car, as this car park has a maximum height barrier.
