Compare Cycle Utah, Columbia Gorge
« on: June 26, 2006, 01:29:36 pm »
Having just done the Cycle Utah event, I'm wondering whether anyone has done both Utah and Columbia Gorge, and can offer a comparison.
some friends are interested in doing one of these, but are a little concerned about the amount of climbing on the Utah route.
Any comments, comparisons?
Thanks
Richard

I have done both utah parks( longer cycle utah ride)and cycle the gorge twice.  there are soom longer climbs on utah parks than on the CTG with higher elev.
we had about 28 to 30k  of climbing on UP ride.  I just did CTG a couple of weeks ago.  It was hot, but I think the ride was quite a bit easier than CU/UP rides.
I did all rides on a LWB recumbent (GoldRush)
