DIFFICULTY RATINGS

To help you get a better idea of what the trips offered by Savy Cycle will be like, we provide details about the distance, speed, fitness, and terrain requirements. On this page, we’ll tell you more about each attribute of the difficulty rating.

Maximum Distance (per day)

The wheel symbol indicates the maximum distance that you can expect to cover on the trip (or each day, if the trip is over more than one day). It is a split rating, one distance for mountain rides and one distance for road rides. The mountain rating is the first distance and the road is the second distance (Mtn/Road). The Distance rating will be from 1 to 4, where:

1 Wheel does not exceed 10/20 Km per day
2 Wheels do not exceed 20/40 Km per day
3 Wheels do not exceed 35/75 Km per day
4 Wheels can be anything above 35/75 Km per day

Fitness Level

The heart symbol is a measurement for the fitness requirement for a trip. It is a measurement based on elevation gain during the ride, a combination of sustained elevation gain and the total elevation gain. The rating can be from 1 to 4 hearts, where:

1 heart does not exceed 125m sustained / 300m total
2 hearts does not exceed 200m sustained / 400m total
3 hearts does not exceed 300m sustained / 450m total
4 hearts can be anything above 400m sustained / 600m total

Terrain Difficulty

The terrain difficulty is be indicated using the IMBA trail rating system, which uses 5 levels of difficulty. These levels are relevant for off-road activity only:

White Circle

Green Circle

Blue Square

Black Diamond

Double Black Diamond

Duration

The total duration of the trip may be specified in hours.

Average Speed

The average speed sustained during the trip may be specified in kilometers per hour.

Overall Difficulty Rating

The overall difficulty rating will be calculated based on all of the trip’s attributes and is given as a score out of 5 (and represented by the Savy S), with 1 S being the easiest and 5 Ss being the most challenging.
