Its good fun though but it can almost break you
At De Wildt up Coconuts, which is similar to Mordor, I got halfway and even considered leaving the bike there

Coconuts and mordor 2 completely different things, mordor has sharp loose shale rocks and coconuts have small round rocks and they are solid, dont really move

They are both still damn hard to ride up, Coconuts is also so much longer

Coconuts is fun, you should try some of the other climbs up that hill, my nemesis at the moment is Samurai, just can't get up there in one go....need a long breather half way.  :'( :'(

We usually start at the copshop, do a climb or 2 there, down with Butches and then head to klipgat to the pakistanie for 2l fuel and a snack!
then off to morula koppie, up samurai, down something, up something, down V up gulley, down coconuts, then head home with darryls river, over butches and then we back at the cop shop, thats a lekker ride!

I've ridden V? You saw how I wanted to die up coconuts, ok I was very unfit, maybe once I have picked up this fitness issue it will be easier

True story, and for the sake of momentum you must stand as far as possible (requires bit more speed tho)
