So exciting to see the over view map! Anyone know how much climbing? The GDR has something like 200,000 ft of climbing. Is this similar? Did they solve the problems of dangerous logging truck areas? I was actually hoping some dirt workaround would have been found for that. Any more info? Thanks kathyI too was excited to see the map and can't wait for more details and the actual maps.
I don't know if the Bil Paul book gives a total or not, but I will try to remember to check tonight. It does have elevation profiles for each section and they don't look horrible. Plenty of climbing as expected, but it looks like long not so steep grades typical of roads in the West. That is not based on personal experience with this route, but only from a bit of perusing the book, so don't take it as reliable info. That said comparing the profiles with those on the TA (which I did ride) makes me think the route is pretty do-able.
