FulGaz HD Cycling Videos: Ride the World’s Best Routes

Mt Mitchell

Asheville, North Carolina USA

About the ride

Up and down along the Blue Ridge Parkway from Craggy Gardens to the top of Mt. Mitchell, the highest paved road in the East of the United States. About 14 miles long. This is not as hard as the climb starting near Marion, and includes some long downhill sections before ending on the final climb up the mountain. About 2000 feet of total climbing. Recorded by Glen Cunningham using the Sony Action Cam. There is some drivetrain clicking that turned out to be a failing bottom bracket - now replaced.
