There will be quite a bit of climbing on my upcoming trip around the north half of the Lake. That made me curious: what was the highest grade I've ever pedaled up and where was it?
The 13% I managed to ride, but we had to dismount when it get closer to and then over 20%.
Fortunately, the steepest slope on my trip will be just 8.4%.
Share your slopes ;)
8%, supposedly, on the Blue Ridge Parkway but there was definitely some steeper slopes from WV into Virginia, I THINK.
Also there's some yikes in the driftless and as it was my first tour, I sure as shucks got off and walked it. :)
...Wait, are you saying you climbed it in high gear?
You could have been a jockey ;)
There's no "could have" here, as you know I know ;)
