BISHOP - CHIPMUNK CANYON 

RIDE OVERVIEW
Chipmunk Canyon is a rad little hill climb in the foothills of Bishop. The meat of this ride is your journey up Chipmunk Canyon - 2.3 miles and 815 feet of elevation gain with an average grade of 6.6%. It is a great little climb and we suggest saving a bit of energy for the last half mile. 

This is a great climb to add onto any other ride in the Bishop area or if you have sadistic tendencies you can do laps on Chipmunk - your call.
