Reeds Gap – Tyro
Distance: 23 miles
Climbing: 140 feet per mile
Description: The beginning of this quite challenging ride includes a 2 mile climb up Cub Creek Road, the last section of which is very steep. After descending and turning onto Crabtree Falls Highway, there is long climb up to the Blue Ridge Parkway; the ride finishes with a fast descent to the starting point.
NOTE: Several of the remaining gravel sections on this route are now paved; only one short section remains. However, since a gravel bike is still recommended for the climb up Cub Creek Road, this route will remain classified as a gravel ride for now.
1. The final descent is long, steep, and fast. Use caution.
