Crank The Kanc - Perhaps the best unknown hillclimb in the East! The “Crank the Kanc” time-trial is one of the lesser known hillclimbs. It is not a pure hillclimb, however. This course starts out near Conway, NH and follows the Kancamagus Highway (Rt 112) to the top of Kancamagus Pass. The course climbs very gradually the first 10 miles before nearly leveling off for another 5 miles. Then the last 4 miles of the 21 mile course are fairly steep, averaging 7% grade with short steeper sections. There are a couple of spectacular vista points along the way. Be sure to enjoy them on the way back down. I have never done this timed event, but I have ridden the Kancamagus Highway on many occasions. The “Kanc,” as it is often called locally, is the backbone to many great cycling rides in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.
