Six Gap

Anyone going to ride this year? I'm probably gonna be a wimp and just do the 3 gap ride, but that's still 5,000 ft. of climbing,

Wow, looks like a great ride. Have you done it before?

This is my first season cycling, and I would love for six gap to be my first century, but I think my eyes might be bigger then my legs. I am pretty sure I will be doing the three gap. Just learned about the ride from the post, so I am going to start doing some pricing. Looks like a great way to close out the season.

I did the 3 gap last year. That's plenty for me. I have did centuries before, but I don't think I have it in me for the 6 gap.

I'm planning on doing this, but if I do, I'm gonna add a trip up Brasstown Bald onto Jacks Gap. I just can't imagine riding past the entrance and not going up.

I just e-mailed my entire club to see if I could muster up any interest. This could make for a fun, challenging weekend trip from Pittsburgh.
