  • Hi Ed,

    You can view all this on mapmyride.com the route is on the site, just do a search for ragbrai 2013. You can also export a kml file to google earth and view the elevation profiles. But you probably know this already.

  • I like how they keep using a different scale, is that 100 feet between lines of 500?

  • Not long ago, I read an interesting article about climbs. It stated, the more sophisticated GPS becomes, we’ll see higher feet of climb. So, the same route that used to be 1,000 ft of climb, could become 1,500 ft, without the state hill department, adding any hills!!!

  • I don’t pay as much attention to elevation charts as I used to. They give you a general idea – very hilly, flat, moderately hilly, etc. – for the days journey. But the scale of most charts is just too compressed to get a feel for the actual intensity of the hills (i.e., the grade). For example, a long gradual hill with a moderate gradient looks about the same on most charts as a long hill with a few “spikes” thrown in where you jump up to 10 or 12% gradient.

    And after all, are you going to stay home just because of some hills?

  • Oh, and the race is run mostly on gravel roads, some over 20%. 130 racers going balls to the wall.

    Pennsylvania is NOT flat. Anywhere.

    See you on the road.

  • That looks AWESOME!
    I bookmarked it. We have very few hills along the shore, so I have to ride (or drive) to inland to hit even the smallest hills.

    Check out these hills!
