10 Dec 2015 Gettysburg & The Civil War Trip Elevation Profile
Our 4-day Gettysburg & The Civil War Tour begins on the battlefield and weaves its way through some of the area’s most historic locations. While you will run into some hills on this tour, don’t let them scare you! You have the determination and guide support to pedal on.
Below is a sampling of the ride elevation profiles from each day of the tour. This is a representative group– it may not include all ride options and it may not be the entire ride of each day. Keep in mind the scale of the image can distort both the steepness up and down of these rides.
Don’t be alarmed by sudden spikes in elevation gain – the GPS tracking cannot account for bridges and tunnels. On a bridge crossing, it reads down to the ground level. Same as a tunnel passing. Instead of reading to the tunnel surface, it reads to the ground level above the tunnel – thus looking like a sudden spike in elevation gain.
*Please note that Day 1’s morning ride is not listed. Your tour begins with a licensed guide, who will take you through the Gettysburg Battlefield.
