The route for Class 5 is the 34km southern loop to Wimbleball Lake.
Wimbleball Lake Loop
First of all this loop heads east from the venue and then west to Treborough and Court Farms, but then heads west along the Coleridge Way to Kingsbridge and Churchtown. It then turns south up the steep climb to the top of Colly Hill and over Lype Common to Checkpoint 1 adjacent to the B3224. The riders then cross the road, head south and then east to Gupworthy Farm over private land. Having turned south for a short stretch on the road, the route bypasses Withiel Florey, again over private land, down through a picturesque valley. The path then runs adjacent to the banks of Wimbleball Lake (but not too close!) and on to Checkpoint 2 just west of the Lake.
Having left the lake, the route turns north, once again on a private track in Kings Brompton Forest and back to a bridleway which in turn leads to the road to Kennisham Hill, returning to Checkpoint 1 by the B3324. The route returns to the venue over the Newcombe Farm and Langham Farm Estates.
