The 2022 Uphill Battle is arguably Trailnet’s most difficult ride in the organization’s 34 year history…and that’s the point. The Uphill Battle features Category 3 Climbs that rival ascents seen on TV during the Tour de France with grades over 10%. This ride ain’t no joke.
When designing this route we focused on one thing – hills. Who says you need to go to The Rockies to climb a mountain? This ride is equal parts mental fitness and physical fitness. Like Jens Voigt famously said, “Shut up legs.”
If you’re a true glutton for punishment, try the 90 mile route. This route features a nice flat 20 mile stretch of Katy Trail gravel right in the middle of the route’s 5,300 feet of climbing.
All finishers will receive a special token from our partners at Trailhead Bicycles to remember the time your legs almost fell off.
