I am new to bike forums as I am fairly new to cycling. I am currently training for Wildflower triathlon and have got the swim/run down but need to practice time in the saddle. Does anyone know any 13 percent grades lasting about 2 miles in Marin County? Maybe that's getting specific, but I figured there has got to be at least one! The climb at the beginning of the bike is 13 percent and I need to get my confidence up! It could be something longer than a couple of miles, I am just trying to simulate the experience as best as I can! Thanks for any info and happy riding!
