    The keys below are relative to the types of ride that the club does and distances covered within the duration will be affected by the terrain, ascent, weather and ability of the group.

    Medium - 2-3 hours
    Long - 3-4 hours
    Mini-epic - 4-5 hours
    Epic - 5+ hours

    Green/Easy - Rides with very low risk, but may include short, more difficult sections. Shallow climbs and descents.
    Blue/Moderate - Some loose surfaces, ruts, potholes and or tree roots. Shallow or moderate climbs, possibly including short sections of steeper climbs.
    Red/Difficult - Unavoidable berms, boardwalks, large stones, moderate steps and drop offs. Cambers, water crossings and ''North Shore'' may be present. A wide range of steeper, tougher climbs and descents of a challenging nature.
    Black/Severe - Unavoidable obstacles with large steps and drop-offs. There will be prolonged steep, loose and rocky surfaces. Some man made structures will be included. Can include exposed open hill sections. Any rideable or usable gradient, including steep loose, and rocky descents.
