CLIMB SUMMARY

Cycling Blowing Cave Road

Ride 2 miles gaining 796’ at 7.5% average grade (9.2% climb only).

At 15.7% Blowing Cave Road has the steepest half mile segment in all of Alabama.

Climb summary by PJAMM ambassador Dan Razum, San Jose, CA.

This is a nice climb in the countryside, although there are several houses all along the road. There aren't any views along this climb, but it is a pleasant rural setting, with many trees providing shade for a lot of the climb.

The road is a bit narrow, about a lane and a half, but there isn't much traffic, just local residents, so it is fine.  The pavement is mostly in good condition, with a few rough patches in the steep sections but nothing too bad.

There are two steep sections along this climb, but luckily they aren't too long. But they will make you work hard to get through them.

The top isn't marked but after the second steep section you are basically there.  The road continues on after the summit and eventually you will come to the top of Keel Mountain North which you can descend and then climb back up, for additional steep climbing. Or you can add this climb to part of a longer route on the rural roads in this area.

Last ramp to the top.

Finish.
