Mountains of Misery is a challenging bike ride for dedicated road cyclists through the heart of southwest Virginia. The annual timed event features century (100+ mi) and double-metric century (200 km/124+ mi) options—both ending in a tough, four-mile 12%–16% graded climb to the finish.
Rick Woods completed the 101 mile long, 8400’ of elevation gain ride in 5hr 22min. The lead group slowly dwindled down to 8 folks by the 4 mile to go mark, and Rick was able to gain over a minute on the 2nd place finisher in the final 1.5 mile. Awesome job Rick!
