More details available from the ride leader, but this precursor to Wednesday's Cades Cove ride is an assault of Clingman's Dome, the highest point in Tennessee at approximately 6600'.  It is a 20 mile route with an average incline of 4.4% and much greater at spots near the end. It is a climber's climb. Group may SAG down depending on conditions and traffic on the day. Details are in planning stage. See Bena if you are interested.
