FALLS CREEK GRAVEL TRAIL WITH PAUL VAN DER PLOEG

Join World Champion mountain biker Paul van der Ploeg as he takes us on some of the remote gravel roads hidden out the back of Falls Creek. Testing climbs on the way to the summit of Mount McKay, stunning views and even snow make this experience both spectacular and challenging. A few days prior to recording this ride, there was a mid-autumn snowfall, making this even more challenging- and beautiful.

FULTZ GAP GRAVEL CLIMB

Fultz Gap is a very remote gravel climb on the first ridge in West Virginia after crossing a taller ridge (10 miles earlier) that forms the border of Virginia and WVa. This climb has gained in popularity and folklore as Jeremiah Bishop has included it in his VERY tough Alpine Loop Gran Fondo. We start with a short descent along a fork of a branch of the Potomac River. Enjoy this flat because this climb kicks up in a series of ramps that will test your choice of gears and choice of lines through the sometimes bumpy and rough gravel. Your reward is a view only a few will have earned of a beautiful farm on top of the mountain and finally a brief glimpse of a steep paved descent on the other side

ROCACORBA

Named after the 12th century Santuari de Rocacorba castle that sits just below the summit. This quiet, narrow and winding road begins just outside Banyoles, then ramps up to an average 6.5% for the near 10Km climb to the summit. The steepest section is near the end, as you first catch sight of the TV mast with less than 2Km to go. You can look forwards to an amazing view at the top.
