1. Easy Suitable for anyone who can ride a cycle and can manage a bit of exercise. There might be the odd twisty section and a long day, but on the whole – easy!
2. Moderate For the weekend Cyclist who exercises regularly and perhaps goes for a weekend ride. Fitness is more important than technical ability for tours of this level, as the track surfaces will be smooth without any single trail.
3. Active Suitable for reasonably fit people who are confident cyclists. Longer riding days mainly on gravel, with potentially single trail, sand, water crossings but no difficult hill climbs. There may be some rutted hills but not too many.
4. Challenging Long riding days and tougher terrain requiring specific experience of more demanding and technical riding. The routes can contain rough tracks and deep sand so off-road riding skills are a must. You should be confident of your physical condition and bike handling skills. In some cases the distances may be low but due to heat or sand, the riding is still a challenge.
5. Tough- Serious expeditions designed for serious riders, which are very long hard tours. Riders should be happy to undertake long tough rides up and down steep hills, deep sand or following very technical trails in testing conditions. A high level of fitness required, as well as proven off- road riding skills.
