Location: Segment starts just after the Goa Entry Toll booth and ends at the Karnataka border post on the top.
Rating: Hard. The first 4 kms is a gradual climb and then it eases off and dips a bit for a couple of kms before kicking up sharply for the rest of the climb.
Road Condition: Goa roads are all fantastic…this is butter smooth 🙂
USP: Good roads, mostly forest cover so if was not hot even though I did this in late April. One of the best climbs I’ve done and will go back for more. Goa is a cyclist’s dream destination if you dare to go off the beaten touristy track.
