The Kona Adventure Team takes to the lowest point in North America, Badwater Basin (-282.2′), to the highest in the contiguous US, Mount Whitney (14,505′). The cool thing about this is it used to be an annual bike race, dubbed the Whitney Classic. This route climbs three classic passes, Townes Pass is 16.6 miles and ascends 5,000′, Hillcrest is 11.9 miles and ascends 3,000′, and The Whitney Portal road is 12 miles and ascends 5,000′. I’ve spoken with cyclists in Owens Valley who used to hike to the top of Mount Whitney the day after the race as “recovery.”
