A mountain bike ride of 12.5 miles (20 km) can be more strenuous than a recreational trip of 30 miles (50 km) on flat terrain. Therefore we use three levels of physical fitness as a measure:
- Easy – you are untrained and in a normal physical condition;
- Moderate – you cycle regularly and you are in a good physical condition;
- Challenging – you are an experienced cyclist and you are well-trained.
The level is indicated at each tour.
