Competition Stage 7 - Hells Gates
Hells Gates, the narrow mouth at the head of Macquarie Harbour was a daunting site to the arriving convicts, as it signalled the beginning of hell on earth for them. For Wildside MTB riders, it is quite the opposite as you speed through coastal plains, pine forests and ride on Ocean Beach before the ride back to Strahan, the finish line, lunch and ultimately, presentations.
The last night is for socialising. You can relax with the knowledge that you have travelled over 200 km of the most wild and varied mountain bike terrain in one event, anywhere in the world
