BPG Le Gravel Puncheur Mount Pleasant

The Puncheur is the rider that loves the rolling terrain, with short sharp hills to drop the pack, tight turns, changing road surfaces and constantly out the saddle when the mood takes them. Their home is the one day classic. This ride is a Puncheur's course at 96% gravel and a host of pinch climbs. No two days are the same out there and no two riders will tackle it the same way. It probably has every surface within its 67km but its all rideable on a standard bike. If you are looking for a challenge to test yourself, then this is it.
