|Question for bay area peninsula riders: What's a decent time for the old la honda climb? I did it last week in 23 minutes. I know that is not setting any records by any stretch, but was just wondering what the clubs that ride there do it in.|

|I thought Eric Heiden did it in around 14 minutes.
Anyway, I'm not interested in the record! I was just interested in what a respectable time for a club rider was.

|Wow, Divisadero is the steepest thing I've ever gone up (and only on my mtb) listed at 22% - I can't imagine something at 32 %. Those are some fast times for the peninsula climbs too.|
|Anybody know the grade on Metcalf Rd ?||Fr Ted Crilly|

|23 minutes is a respectable time. Most non-pros who call themselves good climbers would be happy with that. Get yourself down to 21 minutes and you can be king of the mountain for the day. Last time I was there I did 19:40.|

|Getting into the 22 to 23 minute range is pretty decent. Going sub 20 is very impressive! |
I understand that they've repaved some of the road so *maybe* it's a tad faster?

|I used to do it mid-low 18s and knew a few people in the 16-17 range. Do it with the noon loop sometime--there used to be some fast people on that ride, anyway. What a great road--too bad they repaved it, was a real thrill to descend, too. Been a while...|| |
