Overall Difficulty:

Starting in Richmond to Boonesborouggh park will be difficult with several short and long climbs.  The climb from Boonresborough to Athens is the most difficult part with about 900 ft of climbing over a 10 mile distance.

At the top of Spears we get 2.0 miles down hill to the ferry.

Crossing the ferry we have 13 miles of a nice +2% grade Back into Richmond.

Typically people will ride this route .5 to 1.5 mph avg slower than typical Lexington club rides.

 

Details:

There will be a small SAG stop in Athens.

The first 28 miles to Athens is difficult.

The second 28 miles is fairly pleasant riding.
