Found this great 200 foot long ramp at Redondo Beach, CA. It's 24% grade makes it super steep and perfect for hill training.

Jeez, I'm outa breath from just watching that.haha, me too!
You are so awesome, very well done!Thanks. I really want to be able to get 10 climbs! (My body might have something to say about that though, loL!)
Aw, come on, man. You're only carrying half the weight of a full bike. :rolleyes: (Just kidding.)
That's a bit like the hill that leads up to my house. I end every ride on a 1000 ft 19 - 22% climb. It's always a good indicator of how hard the rest of the ride was. There are some days when I've put in too many miles or hammered too hard, where I barely make it.

Looks like fun to me! I'll try it next time I find myself that far North along the beach. Reminds me of Blue Lantern in Dana Point. Very steep, but not very long.
