    Does anyone do the climb along Big Basin Way (Highway 9) to Skyline Blvd. (Highway 35)? How long does it typically take you? I just started climbing recently. Want to know where I stand. Last time it took me 41:43.

    Where did you start the clock from? That's only 3 seconds from my best time on Highway 9 ever; and I've been riding it regularly for the past 15 years or so...

    Oh, and for the topic at hand... I discovered this forum while looking for stats on a certain local climb. So this is only my third post here. I've been on a hillclimb kick lately, and have established 6 new PRs in the past 10 days. Here's my list:

    Highway 9 (last crosswalk in Saratoga to the stop sign at the top): 41:27 -summer 2008
    Montebello: 40:37 -8/31/09
    Bohlman: 41:43 -8/28/09
    Bohlman On Orbit Bohlman: 45:57 -8/7/09
    Wildcat var. BOOB: 45:54 (immediately after PR on BOOB) -8/7/09
    Montevina: 38:00 (9/4/09)
    Bonny Doon: 28:00 (to the winery. 52:25 to Empire Grade via Ice Cream Grade) -(9/7/09)
    Alba: 39:55 (9/7/09)
    Sierra Road: 31:50 (some time in 2007)
    Calaveras/Felter Road: 1:05 (from home: ~12 miles -3.5 flat)
    Weller Road: forgot the time... But fun!
    Quimby Road: don't remember... But suffered in the heat!
    Mount Hamilton (from west): 1:44:48 (LKHC '08)
    Mount Hamilton (from East): 53:45 (4/5/08)
    East Dunne Road(SJBC Winter Series Race): 44:40 (10/26/08)
    Old La Honda: 22:35 -3/29/08
    West Old La Honda: 17:30 -12/25/09
    Kings Mountain: 31:30 -6/16/07
    Alpine Road (to end of pavement from Portola Road): 16:30 (9/5/09)

    Good (and thorough) list. You should join up a ride sometime. Would definitely push a lot of us, but be pushed by others.

    I'm always game for riding with new people... I ride at totally random times during the week and with my fiancee on the weekends (she's no slouch!).

    Woo hoo - another PR up San Bruno Mtn today - 23m 04s. Spinning my way up Guadalupe resulted in a surprisingly good time to the park entrance - I also had to slow down for a red light half way up, so I think I can crack the 23min mark in the not too distant future.

    I start the clock exactly at the arrow shown on the map. Good to know that I'm not too far off. I'm the kind of guy who picks up a sport really quickly but stops making progress after a few weeks or so.

    Diablo, 2nd time up, 1:12:02. From the Athenian school.

    Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.

    Nice.

    20min is my dream time. Doubt I'll ever be much faster, if I even manage to get there.

    Woo hoo part 2 - another new PR 22m 53s. Nice psychological mark to break 23minutes for the first time.

    Ok, I didn't want to post my time here until I could advertise what I feel is respectable time ... still a little slow compared to others ... but my PB up Montebello ... 45 min

    The laughing can now commence!
    I'm in it to finish it.

    Very nice time UP HWY9. Your route is just over 7 miles. I'm light years behind on these 7 miles (52min).

    It seems there is big inconsistency in measuring starting point for this climb. Ultracycle.net measures from Pierce Rd. intersection which makes it a 5.55mile climb.
    Now, how do you deal with one-way section past Saratoga springs where traffic light might be red as you attempt the climb? On some of my climbs it just happen to be green so I can ride straight through but last Sunday it was red both on ascend and descend.

    Ron, that's a crazy time. I'm not confident I could match it right now.

    There were crazy fast times all around. My psychologist girlfriend chalks it up to the "mere presence" effect - http://www.rpi.edu/~verwyc/oh7.htm

    Either that or the stopwatches at the top and bottom weren't in sync

    I was really pushing hard that day. I looked back at my Garmin stats, and my max HR was 184 at the top, trying to squeeze every watt of energy out of me. Never got it that high, as far as I can remember.

    New climbs for me today.

    Kings Mountain - 29:48 from Greer, and 32:50 from Woodside Rd.

    My performance up West Alpine was not King of anything though....

    Let's get a good showing for bikeforums at the Montevina low-key climb tomorrow. Our own ericm is coordinating, it's close and local for us South Bay folks, and it's a gorgeous area.
