Death is waiting for you…at the top of a really steep hill.

In one month, hundreds of riders will embark on one of the most scenic rides in New York, the Highlander Cycle Tour.  If you are one of the hardcore cyclists, you will meet death at the top of one of the steepest hills on the ride, Bopple Road.  It has an average grade of 13.9% with a maximum of 23% grade, ranked 179th hardest climb in the US.

There is a reason why Death is waiting for you up top.
