2018 RBC Gran Fondo Whistler, September 8th.

Blue

Blue Ridge Brutal

August 11 2018
West Jefferson, North Carolina, USA

There are 3 BRB Ride options – 100, 75 and 57 miles. The start and finish point for all of them is the Ashe Civic Center in West Jefferson (see ride location below). All the Rides are challenging and spend at least 20 miles on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Details of the routes and elevation gains for each Ride can also be found under route maps. While challenging, each of the rides travels through some of the most beautiful scenery in North Carolina.

Assault on Mt Jefferson

Entry for this additional 3.1 mile challenge is limited to only 50 riders and is not for the faint hearted. The elevation gain is almost 1,454 feet which, although never classified, makes this ride very comparable to a Category 2 climb. Those who attempt this at the end of completing their main ride will be provided transport back to the Finish point. Riders are not permitted to cycle back down – sorry!!
