Route Description

This route has the longest lead-in of any Yumezi route at 4km length, with a good chunk of climbing!

We spawn on the island just before the Fishing Village. Ride over the bridge, through the Village, then turn left onto the dirt and begin your climb. But instead of finishing the KOM from this side, you’ll cut across on the bypass trail, then finish the KOM from the Castle side. Once you ride through the KOM arch at the giant tree, the actual route begins.

From here you’ll descend toward the Fishing Village, take the bypass trail, descend to the Castle, then cut across to the Fishing Village area where you’ll begin it all over again.

It’s 12.6km with 244m of climb – about 30-40mins for most. Let’s just drop the lead in nonsense and call a spade a spade!

Yup they are 2 completely different rides. It is pointless to describe as you have @eric SCHLANGE

That’s only true if all you ever do is ride the whole thing once to get the badge.

If (as I often do) you want to pick a shortish route and then do a number of laps then it is important to understand which but is the lead in (that you will only do the first time) and which is the actual route that you will do the rest of the laps on.

I would say Eric does a good job of making that totally clear.

Plus an extra 1.6km (14km total, 258m elevation) if you do it from the event pens. 🤣
