Scheduled two weeks after the Mt. Ascutney Bike Climb and two weeks before the Mt. Washington Hill Climb, this race can provide both a unique training opportunity for those preparing to race Mt Washington or a very challenging single day event.
While there is just one hill in this event…the average overall grade is 12% and equivalent to that of Mt. Washington and Mt. Ascutney. Check with your local bike shop or follow this link for a discussion on appropriate gearing ratios and other information relevant to uphill bike climb races.
