Description Bike north along road (very short distance) and immediately after Barry’s Place turn left at road intersection. Follow road inland and uphill, long climb around 300m on dirt road (steep in sections). Nearing top at road intersection turn left and continue up hill in southerly direction.  As you reach top gradient becomes less steep and road more undulating but still going upwards. Continue riding south towards Seumau village and then climb further eventually reaching Anartutu village.  After a rest retrace the road back to Beloi – downhill most of the way. Road condition varies with season but is challenging – some steep sections.
