    2015 Kettle Mettle

    Did anyone ride the 2014 Kettle Mettle dirt "fundo" from Penticton to Kelowna last year? If so, is it do-able for a relative newbie MTB'er with years of road experience? I'm not a good climber, but the gradients look manageable.

    Any advice appreciated!

    No.

    I saw that the other day and it looks cool, RR grades are never more than 2 or 3% so I would think the grade would be manageable. I am more interested I what the surface is. Years ago, before they did any improvements, it was deep RR ballast which is not fun to ride on.
