Peninsula - Extreme Hill Climb Challenge

82 miles

The Peninsula - Extreme Hill Climb Challenge (formerly the "Death Ride") is for advanced riders looking for the ultimate physical test. Based on a route originally mapped out by members of the Cleveland Touring Club, it takes you up and down over a "dirty dozen" of the steepest climbs in the Cuyahoga Valley.

However, most of the route lies within a 10-mile radius of your starting point in Peninsula, so there is usually a bail-out point nearby if you decide in the middle of the ride that you bit off more than you can chew!

Since parking space at our Peninsula store can be limited, the starting and ending points for the route are at the Lock 29 Trailhead, located on Mill Street.

You can check out the full details of the Extreme Hill Climb Challenge on Century Cycles' Ride With GPS profile. From there, you can print a cue sheet and download the route to your GPS device.
