Cherohala Challenge question
I am signed up for the Cherohala Challenge and trying to decide between the metric and full route. I rode the metric route on Sat. without too much distress, although it was a long grind. The scenery was awesome! I was at the Santeetlah rest stop at the top and I met a cyclist that had just climbed the NC side of the Skyway. He said the NC side was waaay more difficult than the TN side, which got me nervous about committing to the full route, especially after all the climbing the route has before reaching the Skyway.
Any opinions about how both sides compare to each other. The only century I have completed is the 3-State 3 Mountain (or lately, 3-State 3 Inches of Rain) and am looking for another challenging century.
