10 Dec 2015 Pennsylvania Dutch Country Trip Elevation Profile
Our tour of Pennsylvania’s Dutch Country is rated as an intermediate tour, and will include some hills. Getting up and over them is truly the best way to appreciate the rolling central Pennsylvanian landscape.
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.
