Has anyone raced in the Whiteface hillclimb? I know that it is an 8 mile race with an average of an 8% grade, anyone have anymore info?

Hi ridebikeme,

Here you go...

I rode the Highlander Cycle Tour last year which is in the Finger Lakes region of New York. The Highlander is a full day of MONSTER climbs. Over 11,000 feet of elevation gain over 100 miles. I highly recommend it. Here is the link to that site...

I did the Whiteface hillclimb run 2 years ago and loved it. The bikerace would probably be a lot of fun (if I remember right it looked like the pavement was in decent shape- and the grade was quite do-able).

From what i saw, I think superhero costumes would be a nice touch. Or sport mascot costumes. Or cheerleader outfits. Or anachronistic nurse uniforms.

Thanks everyone for the info and websites. I had indeed read the Whiteface race website before posting. I have to admit, after readng the Highlander website, it almost makes the hillclimb seem rather easy HA!

So will you ride in the cheerleader outfit or anachronistic nurse uniform? Do people climb in costume?
