A section on the road follows before you come to section two of the AB Trail. This was created by excavator and impresses accordingly with flow. The berms ride well and you can build up a lot of speed. The speed rush does not last long, however, because after just a few meters the forest floor pushes its way under your cleats again. This is also the steepest section of the entire trail, followed by a northshore element.
After the next section of forest road, the last section of the AB trail begins. Here you can really step on the gas again in the forest and enjoy jumps and speed.
The road between the individual sectors offers beginners the opportunity to bypass individual sections.
