|About This Event|
SIX GAP CENTURY
The Six Gap Century’s ultra challenging route takes you up and down six of the steepest climbs in the North Georgia Mountains. Test your stamina with more than 11,200 feet of vertical climbing over the 104 mile course.
Elevations for the six gaps in this ride range from 2,949 feet to 3,490 feet.
The toughest climb, Hogpen Gap, will test even the strongest riders, averaging a 7% grade for seven miles, with sections as steep as 15%.
THREE GAP FIFTY
The Three Gap Fifty’s alternative route offers half the gaps and half the distance, but is nevertheless a demanding and challenging course at 58 miles. Elevations range from 3,109 feet to 3,280 feet.
The 35-mile Valley Ride is a great introduction to the infamous Six Gap Century. Taking place in Georgia’s Premier Cycling Venue, the Six Gap Valley Ride boasts some of the most scenic mountainside in the Southeast. This route will cast a special spotlight onto Yahoola Valley, Turner’s Corner, and R-Ranch in the Mountains.
