Cycling Lake Sabrina - another great bike climb near Bishop.
Ride 15.7 miles, gain 4,910’ to 9,160’ at 5.7% average grade.
Lake Sabrina is one of the 9 Top 100 rides that begin in the Owens Valley (PJAMM Cycling Owens Valley Climb Area Page) on the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in the central-eastern part of California. The climb begins gradually as you ride for 4 miles towards the eastern Sierras (which seemingly take forever to reach) at an average grade of 4%. The last 10 miles of the climb are at 7.1% (the 4.9-5.9 mile stretch is at 11% average grade). The entire climb follows highway 168, although the final few miles are much more scenic than the first few. The first 11.7 miles of the climb are shared with Top 100 climb #25 South Lake.
Another early PJAMM Start.
Traffic and Roadway report: The roadway surface is excellent and there is a good bike lane most of the way. Traffic, as can be seen in the YouTube video, travels by very fast and this is not a stretch of road for the faint of heart.
Steepest ¼ mile begins at mile 4.9 (14.2%) and the steepest mile begins at 4.7 (11.3%)
