Love Gap is one of two climbs to Reed's Gap - this route is from the far side of the Wintergreen ski resort (the old Tour DuPont mountain finish). The other climb is shorter, steeper and hotly contested among the area’s best Pros!
Love Gap starts with a long 1-2% warm-up before the main climb starts. The full climb is 5.8Km/3.6 miles, averaging 5-7% with some steeper 10-11% sections. The second 4.7Km/2.9 mile climb to Raven’s Roost is much easier at a 3% average. Right at the end, you are rewarded with a perfect view of Love Gap and the valley below.
These are two steady higher speed climbs great for testing your threshold!
