14th Annual Blood Sweat & Gears
The countdown is on for the 14th annual Blood Sweat & Gears. The 100-mile bicycle route, scheduled for Saturday, June 23, sold out in seven hours, and the 52-mile route on the same day sold out in 10 hours.
The BSG is a challenging to strenuous full English century – 100 mile loop ride starting and ending at the Valle Crucis Elementary School, approximately 5 miles south of Boone, North Carolina. The route roughly circles Boone through the outskirts of Watauga County, the heart of North Carolina’s High Country. The terrain is constantly changing with hills of all lengths and curves too numerous to count. The cumulative climbing elevation is 13,000+ feet, with the climb up to the gap at Snake Mountain, milepoint 63, reaching an 18-20% grade near the top.[quote style=”1″]It’s a great area for riding, very hilly, but I’d say it’s the best area for training in the whole of the United States. – Lance Armstrong[/quote] Ride Details
