Twotone is riding 6 Gap with his Dad in the morning. Its gonna be epic! And no, he won’t be on a track bike! Stay tuned for photo updates over the course of the 100 mile ride.
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 100 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%.
The Three Gap Fifty’s alternative route offers half the gaps and half the distance, but is nevertheless a demanding and challenging course. Elevations range from 3,109 feet to 3,280 feet.
PLEASE NOTE: We have made a major change in the route. The new route promises more great views, more challenges, and more fun!
We are also pleased to announce the 1st Annual Six Gap “Valley Route” Bike Ride. This 35-mile valley option is a great introduction to the infamous Six Gap Century and boasts some of the most scenic mountainside in the Southeast. This new route will cast a special spotlight onto Yahoola Valley, Turner’s Corner, and R-Ranch in the Mountains. Visit Active.com to find out more information.
