CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Sharon Mountain Road

Ride 4.1 miles gaining 869’ at 3.8% average grade (4.3% climb only)

Start of climb.

“The ascent of Sharon Mountain Road along Route 4 is a solid hill that is popular with area riders.  Through woods and over robust grade to begin, the slope eventually becomes stair step.  A car or two may pass you on this hill but not enough to influence your ride.  The grade then becomes more steady as you continue to gain altitude.  Near the top the pedaling gets easier and the listed climb ends at Dunbar Road on the left.” (This quote is provided with the approval of John Summerson from his book, The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike) in the Northeast, pg. 57.)

Climb summary by PJAMM Ambassador Dan Razum.

We start at the intersection of Rte 7 and Rte 4, just outside of the town of Cornwall Bridge. We climb up Rte 4, through nice scenic country side.

The climb starts out moderately steep but the gradient soon relaxes and it is pretty mellow for most of the climb.  The last mile or so is basically rolling terrain which makes for a quick ascent. The scenery is mostly forest with a few houses mixed in along the way.

There is some traffic along the road, but not too bad.  The pavement is in good condition and there is a wide shoulder, which, along with the not-too-steep gradient, makes for a pleasant ride.

The top is marked by a traffic sign indicating that the road goes downhill for the next mile.
