Cycling Death Valley Road - a Top 100 US Bike Climb in a very hot venue.
Steepest ¼ mile begins at mile 6.1 (11%) and steepest mile at 4.5 (9.5%)
Death Valley Road is at the northern tip of Death Valley National Park and on some maps is referred to as "Big Pine Road" which passes through several points with distinctly Death Valley nomenclature (e.g. Crankshaft Junction and Last Chance Mountain) on its way to the start which begins at Scotty's Castle. This is the northernmost of the 10 Death Valley climbs on our index (Death Valley-Las Vegas Page) and while we have climbed Death Valley Road West during the Everest Challenge, we have yet to personally experience this climb.
