For the next 7 KMs you only need your small chainring and the two big cogs. First you ride on a straight trail through the oak ‘ hazel nut and nut gardens but as you reached to the hill side the going gets tough and the tough gets going for 4 KMs you have an hard steep ascent which climbs the mountain in 9 zig zag routes. On the 10th turn you can get down for a short rest and enjoy the sights .From north Arak City is seen and if you look eastward there is a small plain in front of you with 2 tiny villages in it separated by a small mountain ridge from a vast desert which lies for the next 50 KMs .By the way our university is could also be seen next to the ridge.
