CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Route 341 West

Ride 3.9 miles gaining 925’ at 4.2% average grade (4.9% climb only)

This is the #10 hardest road bike climb in Connecticut.

“The west side of Route 341 is a moderate sloped ascent fairly close to the New York border that does carry some traffic.  The initial climbing is shallow to moderate with a few houses but mostly woods along the way.  Soon you encounter a flat.  Climbing then resumes over the most challenging grade on the hill before easing just before the listed climb end at Bald Hills 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. 63.)

Climb start.

Climb summary by PJAMM Ambassador Dan Razum

This is a fairly gentle climb, with a little over a half mile of steeper climbing in the first half of the ride.  The first mile is shallow and it is a good section to warm up.  We ride through a forest for the entire ride so there aren't any scenic views but the scenery is nice and tranquil.

The road is in decent condition.  There is some sort of shoulder the entire way, at times it is narrow and at times it is wide. The traffic is light, there aren't many houses along the road.  Overall,  the ride felt safe, we had no concerns.

Unmarked finish - top oa ascent.
