Ride 3.6 miles gaining 1,433’ at 7.7% average grade.
Each side of the gap has a 30-50 yard segment at 26%. 😓
Climb begins at the bridge over New Haven River.
This is a beautiful ride through pastures and then up a brutally steep one mile segment to the finish at the highest paved road in Vermont. The last mile of the climb averages 13% and includes a quarter mile averaging a whopping 17%.
Just before the 17% ¼ mile segment.
We pass a few farms on the bottom section of the climb.
There are about two miles of very manageable gravel before the killer final mile.
Lincoln Gap is the highest paved road in Vermont.
Photos are of the area within 100 yards of, and at, the gap.
