Would not mind betting that after the first ride up that hill- the wife will be wondering what all the fuss is about.
We have a hill locally that looks very daunting whan you are at the bottom- get riding and the awkward bit is on the approach- just a 4 or 5% but you know worse is to come. By the time you get to the 8% you are nicely warmed up- the legs are in and suddenly you are at the top. 8 miles is a bit long to suddenly find you have done the ride but it will be easier than you or the wife thinks.
And 8 miles----Don't forget to drink---Plenty.
How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.
