Our first ride in the pristine Kazuko region. A tough opening start as we climb into the park, followed by a gentle middle section as we meander in search of some big 5. A sting in the tail as we head to our lunch spot at Kazuko lodge followed by a mostly downhill run to the campsite.

The final day and an earlier start as people need to get back on the road. We head along the river bank at Kazuko and up the final challenging pass for the trip. Once we reach the summit it’s a downhill run home. Have a shower, grab your lunch pack and get on road by 12pm.
