CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Hwy 180 - Rancho Grande, NM

Ride 6.3 miles gaining 1,618’ at 4.9% average grade

Climb report by PJAMM ambassador Dan Razum, Campbell, CA.

The climb starts just past the intersection of Route 12 and Highway 180.  

Although we ride along the highway, the road is wide with a good shoulder and traffic is light, so we always felt safe.

There aren't any sharp turns and visibility is good through the curves so it is easy to see traffic and for traffic to see a cyclist.

The slope is fairly uniform throughout the climb and it is never too steep. Because of the altitude

it isn't likely to get too hot, either, so this can be a fun climb.

There isn't a lot of scenery until you get near the top, where there is a scenic overlook with  sweeping views of the valley below.  The top is actually a little further on, so continue past the scenic overlook until you come to a large pulloff area, where Forest Road 35 meets the highway.
