If you like to climb, this rides for you!\\n<br>\\\\n\\n<br>\\\\nStart in Walnut Creek (atlternative, start in Alamo going up South Gate Road a few miles shorter and a few hundred less feet of climbing).\\n<br>\\\\n\\n<br>\\\\nThe first 5 miles is flat to moderate, but from the 5 mile mark to the top (14 mile) the grade really kicks up!\\n<br>\\\\n\\n<br>\\\\nAt about the 9.5 mile mark is the South Gate Rd junction (about 2000&#039;). The next 5.5 miles the grade increase a point or two on average again, climbing another approx. 1700&#039;.\\n<br>\\\\n\\n<br>\\\\nAt the top are some great views if the weathers clear. I&#039;ve seen Mt Lassen and through binoculars - Half Dome.\\n<br>\\\\n\\n<br>\\\\nWell what goes up must come DOWN. This a great decsent(!) and in spots very technical (be careful around some of the sharper/hairpin curves).\\n<br>\\\\n\\n<br>\\\\nHammer home the last 5 miles then enjoy a good meal!!\\n<br>\\\\n
