10 Dec 2015 Shenandoah & The Civil War Trip Elevation Profile
Our Shenandoah & The Civil War is one of our few tours that is rated as intermediate to advanced. This is because the Blue Ridge you’ll be riding through is exactly that- full of ups and downs! If you’re up for beautiful road rides that are slightly more challenging and get your adrenaline up, this is a tour for 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.
