CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Reids Gap North

Ride 2 miles gaining 960’ at 9.3% average grade.

Start of climb.

Climb summary by PJAMM ambassador Dan Razum.

This is a short climb from the valley up to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Even though it isn't too long, it does have some steep sections.  It starts out steep for the first quarter mile, eases up a bit and then the last half mile is pretty steep again. It's a certainly good workout if you want to attack it hard.

The road is two lanes, without a shoulder.  We encountered few cars so traffic wasn't a concern. The road is a bit twisty which also prevents the cars from going very fast.  The pavement is in great condition, very smooth except for one little area where there were some scatches in the surface, probably from heavy machinery.  

We climb through a forest the whole way and although there aren't any scenic views along the climb the scenery is still nice.   There is plenty of shade but the surface could be slippery in wet weather, especially in the fall, when leaves can fall on the road.

Finish at the Blue Ridge Parkway.
