Climbing records

I know most of you do not ride up this way much (Sonoma/Napa counties) however I thought some might enjoy seeing this and maybe inspire a few to show up and do some of these. This is a list of "Unofficial" clmbing records in the area. Some are very impressive, in particular the Cavedale Rd record. Check out the time and the holder. To give some perspective on that record I usually do it in about 4o minutes.
If anyone ever wants to come up and ride any of these let me know and I'll be glad to be your guide for the day. Have a great Holiday everyone!
c ya,
Paul

Great job on gathering a lot of times, thank you for your effort. What is a TLC paint marker?

Best way to do it is have someone host it (keep track in a excel spreadsheet) and let peolpe have access via sending hoster e-mail and start accumulating times. Since people arer constantly riding all the hills in the Bay Area and as long as people are honest it should not be that hard to do.
