It may be just under 7 miles, but it’s a steep 6.75 miles to the top at Wintergreen Resort. This past Saturday (5.7.11) cyclists from all over the area took to 664 and pedaled their way to the top. Our NCL Mountain Photographer, Paul Purpura, made Saturday’s race and came back with these shots. Paul’s covered this race for many, many years in the past.
