|imagine a hill with 190 ft. of elevation change in 0.19 miles at an average grade of 18% and max %24!
i've only done it twice and it about kills me everytime at the end of my ride. apparently it is one of the steepest paved roads in ohio.
ill post a picture later. heres a link:

|Picture almost the same hill that goes on for 2 miles; part of the Climb to Kaiser 155 mile ride near Fresno.

|i guess fortunately that hills in S.East Ohio are not nearly |
as burly as the one you describe. i can only imagine the shear amount of awe (or pain) one would have after climbing something like that.

|to do that one on the CFC ride last year. We did do a hard one on the way out of town, but I don't think that it was this one. It was a bit longer and had more switchbacks in it. Plus it was right at the beginning of the ride.
I knew that we'd have to do a hard one right out of the gate to get out of town.
