    BICYCLING Hill Climbs

    Any of you having problems locating some of BICYCLINGs' hill climbs in their current issue? I found the 3 biggest ones in Maui, Montana and Colorado. But Mt. lemon in Arizona and "the Dolly Partons" in Louisiana, zip, nada. If you have done any of the climbs would you please tell me how to find them? Like the 60 feet of climbing at 37% grade in Pittsburg.

    I did a google search and found:

    http://72.14.209.104/search?q=cache:...s&ct=clnk&cd=5

    It mentions Canton ave in Beechview as your 37% hill.

    There is a web site listed for most if not all of the climbs.

    I don't subscribe to Bicycling. How long is the list? Anyone care to post the links?

    It's Pittsburgh with an H and we supposedly have the steepest paved surface in the world.

    One of the climbs is up Cadillac Mtn in Acadia. I have hiked it, and driven up it, but never on a bike. It is really steep towards the end.

    A couple of my favorite training climbs.. Bear Notch Loop just outside Conway.
    And Gorham NH up to Pinkham Notch, the AMC has a nice cafeteria there. Try the soup.
