A pair of road rides through the hilly terrain of northern Georgia, these events are sponsored by the Dahlonega/Lumpkin County Chamber of Commerce. The ultra-challenging 6 Gap Century route rolls up and down six of the steepest climbs in the North Georgia mountains. Test your stamina with more than 10,700 feet of vertical climbing over the 100-mile course. Elevations for the six gaps in this ride range from 2,949 feet to 3,490 feet. The toughest climb, Hogpen Gap, tests even the strongest riders, averaging a seven percent grade for seven miles, with sections as steep as 15 percent. The alternative 3 Gap Fifty route offers half the gaps and half the distance, but is nevertheless a demanding and challenging course. Elevations for the mountains on this ride range from 3,109 feet to 3,280 feet.
