This will be a no drop ride (as much as possible) at an overall average speed of 12-15 mph, going slower on climbs, faster on flats or downhills. Scenery is beautiful, especially west of the French Broad River.

There are significant hills, with the ride averaging 100 ft of climbing per mile; even omitting Ivy Hill, the first 21 miles average 100 ft per mile. A bailout is available at mile 20.8, omitting Ivy Hill and continuing along the scenic French Broad River.

There are some challenging climbs, but there's also a 3 mile descent.
