CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Paint Rock Valley

Ride 3.4 miles gaining 1,050’ at 5.9% average grade.

Climb summary by PJAMM ambassador Dan Razum.

This climb is almost straight, on a nice country road with little traffic.  It is located well in the countryside, so the cars are mostly local traffic and there aren't too many. At the intersection of Rt 146 and Rt 65, just before the climb starts, there is a wide parking area.  But all the local roads in this area are good for biking, with low traffic and good pavement, so you could also include this climb as part of a longer ride.

The climb starts out easy for the first half mile and then it kicks up a bit and remains that way for the rest of the climb.  The trees get thicker as we go higher, which provides some shade but blocks any views.

The road surface is nice and smooth and there is a small shoulder but unfortunately the  shoulder is not really useable because it is grooved and very rough to ride.  But since  the road is straight, allowing us to see cars from far away and there aren't a lot of cars anyway, we felt ok on this ride.

As a descent, you can definitely go fast on this one, with a smooth surface and no curves to slow you down.
