"Gear Up For Lyme Mt. Equinox Uphill Bike Climb
Manchester Center, VT
Saturday, August 04, 2007
A 5.4 mile bike race up the fully paved and scenic Mt. Equinox Skyline Drive auto road in Manchester, VT. Scheduled two weeks before the Mt. Washington Hill Climb, this race can provide a unique training opportunity or a challenging single event. While the average overall grade of 12% is equivalent to that of Mt. Washington, it includes a brief downhill section and a steep 28% grade extended over .07 miles. The Rotary Club of Manchester is presenting this race as a fundraiser to benefit the Lyme Disease Association (LDA). LDA supports research and treatment of Lyme Disease which effects thousands throughout the US every year.

Mt Equinox Uphill Bike Climb Race

This really is a great ride. I did it last year for the first time and was very impressed at how well it is organized. The road is challenging and the views are spectacular (if the weather cooperates). AND it is in aid of a good cause AND a fraction of the price of the Mt. Washinton Hill Climb race.
I think it would be great if we had more riders from NYCC represent the club at this event.

"I do believe sections are steeper than Mt Washington except for the very top of Mt Washington and its infamous reverse ""S.""

Traveling to this venue is easier as it is closer to NYC than either Whiteface or Mt Washington. However, like all the Northeastern hill climbing events, you will need a car to get to this event. But, when the race is over, you are in southwestern Vermont, a great part of the world.

Here is an opportunity to test your hill climbing prowess against the field.

The same as for Mt Washington

"go to: then search their forum for gearing threads."

Here is a website where you can compare the climbs.

Equinox has a very similar profile to Mt. Washington, just a bit shorter.
