Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay Trip Elevation Profile
Our tour of Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay offers you the most ride options of almost all of our trips– each day you can choose either a short or long ride option to cater your vacation to the mileage that feels best to you.
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.
