A good turnout today for our Little Italy trip with nine riders starting from the park and three pick-ups en route. This route doesn't have a huge amount elevation gain overall, but it packs most of the climbing into a few major hills. In the interest of identifying just which hill was the steepest, here's my data:
Pomerado (southbound) 8%
Pomerado (northbound) 8-9%
Ulric (northbound) 9-10%
Bachman (southbound) 12-13%
Curlew (northbound) The Champ at 17-18%!
Oh, and our stop at Cafe Zuchero provided plenty of gelato and pastry choices to replace some of the calories we burned on those hills. The ride home was blessed by a (mostly) tailwind!
