How do I ride this segment?


Aap d'Huez is part of the black route at the Welvanpas trails just outside of Wellington.

 

If you leave Wellington on Church Street towards Bainskloof Pass, follow the Bovlei Road turn off until you reach the Welvanpas farm. Here you can buy riding permits for the trail and grab some refreshments at the cafe.

NOT BEING FUNNY OR ANYTHING....

I JUST THINK THESE SEGMENT HUNTERS SHOULD CHASE THE SEGMENTS WHILST DOING THE WHOLE TRAIL/ TRAINING SESSION LIKE US NORMAL WORKING GUYS.

 

I CAN ALSO GO AND DO JUST ONE SEGMENT THE WHOLE DAY LONG.....SEEMS A BIT UNFAIR, BUT THEN AGAIN, THE PRIZE OF STEALING A SEGMENT FROM A PRO RIDER IS SO MUCH SWEETER THAN ANYTHING ELSE....

 

USE IT, DONT USE IT.......

He's not wrong you know.  Segment hunter on a climb is daft if not incorporated in the whole trail.

Having this in my backyard I can honestly say this girl was flying up there. Yes the rest of us do the segments while doing the rest of the trails but even if you just had to go for this I can assure you this is 1 fcuking fast time!!!!
