Cycling the Blue Ridge Parkway to Mount Pisgah from the north.
Ride ride 14.5 miles gaining 3,800’ at 3.7% average grade.
Warning: There are several long very dark tunnels on this route - bring head and tail lights.
“Mt. Pisgah is a very scenic climb along the Blue Ridge Parkway. The grade is fairly steady and multiple (9) tunnels need to be negotiated along the way. The first 3 are long enough that they are pitch dark so go prepared.” Presented with authority from John Summerson’s The Complete Guide to Climbing (by bike) in the Southeast, p. 93
