Local Gravel Grinding Routes

The rides listed below have been set up using Ride with GPS (RWG).  RWG is a powerful, bicycle-specific mapping application accessed on a desktop and/or mobile device (iOS and Android). Both the desktop and mobile apps allow the rider to create and annotate bicycle routes. The resulting maps can be exported as cue sheets (simple tables that list distance and directions) and .gpx or .tcx files. The RWG mobile app follows the route and provides directional assistance as you ride.

The Rides

Ride with GPS map:

Route Description: This 17-mile route with 2000-feet of climbing is spectacular! The route climbs Cane Creek and area roads and includes a long gravel section. At the top of the climb, in the middle of a road, you must dismount your bike and hike it some 15-feet to access the Wayehutta OHV trails! This hike-a-bike accesses a long and mildly technical descent that ends at Wayehutta Road. The ride finishes with a lovely traverse along the Tuckasegee River, a climb through Dick’s Gap, and a descent back into campus.

Cue Sheet: While the RWG link will allow you to download a .gpx (or .tcx) file, you may also wish to download the cue sheet – a table that chronologically lists directions and distances.

Note: The Wayehutta OHV trails require a day pass, so this route technically requires some pre-planning.
