TIPS FOR MT BAW BAW
Be prepared for steep - very steep. The way the road ramps up can be scary and the short 6.5km climb does not offer any respite. Winch Corner at 20%+ is the steepest part, but all the pain is worth it when you reach the top! Take care, real care on the descent - what goes up, must come down. Practice riding out of the saddle when you train and give yourself plenty of room when riding in a group.
