Cycling Fie Top Road, North Carolina.

Ride 2.9 miles gaining 1,730’ at 11.6% average grade.

This climb is a MONSTER -- no doubt about it.  The best way for a climb under four miles in length to get onto a state or country Top 10 list (here #4) is to be very STEEEEEEP!

Ghost Town amusement park -- perfect parking!
