Description

Completed in 1861 as the Mt. Washington Carriage Road, the winding all-uphill Mt. Washington Auto Road holds a perennial appeal for athletes with a taste for challenges. Each summer since 1973, cyclists have converged at the base of the Auto Road to contend with what professional riders have called the toughest hillclimb in the world.

By 2006 the original Mt. Washington Auto Road Bicycle Hillclimb had become so popular that the Mt. Washington Auto Road company created a second race on the same course – Newton’s Revenge – to accommodate the excess demand for this opportunity to test one’s pedaling strength against the Auto Road’s 12 percent grade.

The race is contested on the same exact course as the original Mt. Washington Auto Road Bicycle Hillclimb, located in Pinkham Notch NH, making Newton’s Revenge the other Toughest Hillclimb in the World.
