what's a good time for this climb?

What's a good time for a four mile climb that gains 660 feet?

That's an average of right at 3% grade. 350 watts would get a 160lb rider up that in a lttle under 14 minutes. Of course real world has a lot of variables that would have to be considered.

Pretty good SWAG Cypress.

8:30 AM. Plenty of time for a cup of coffee and it won't be too hot. If you do it late afternoon with your sig other, you can watch the sunset together from the top.

I say 7am, or I'm at too much risk for getting hungry pre-ride. Right before lunch is good too: 11:30
