Actually, this is more like two rides; just look at the elevation proﬁle. It’s basically a nosweat jaunt through the pastoral Applegate Valley—punctuated by scaling a sheer wall in the woods. This route is not for those aﬄicted with vertigo or anyone who doesn’t harbor the sick notion that the steeper a hill is, the better you feel about it after you climb it.
