Mike P has mapped a route to include four of the six climbs from the 6-Gap century. He mentioned he might be able to include the other two, for an 80-mile option, if anyone's interested.

Right now, I think we're considering 50-60 miles over Jack's Gap, Unicoi, Hogpen Gap, and Wolfpen Gap. Hogpen is a beast, and Wolfpen is no treat, even with fresh legs.

I have arranged my schedule to leave very early Friday July 18 AM, to arrive at Vogel State Park by mid-morning (there is a $2 park entry fee, FYI). The sooner we start, the less time we'll be hung out to dry over monster climbs in mid-July heat.

Pleast post interest, advice, questions, comments, etc. in response to this thread. You're also welcome to e-mail me directly: cat5tattoo at yahoo.com.

Huge thanks to MikeP for putting the route together and checking on specifics.
