    Fargo Street Hill Climb March 6, 2011

    The videos on YouTube and all the pictures in the world do no justice in capturing the STEEPNESS of Fargo Street in Los Angeles. At 33% Grade, Fargo Street is the second steepest hill in the USA. According to some, its the third steepest in the world.

    Today Kevin and I set out on the annual Fargo Street Hill Climb. It was tough and I managed to climb it 15 times before calling it quits. I think I had 5 to 10 more climbs in me, but I needed to get home.

    I like all the photos. Thanks! Some day I will go and actually climb up Fargo. I can just never justify the trip out just to climb for one block. I suppose I should look at incorporating it into a longer ride.

    I can't either, but one of my favorite restaurants in L.A is down the street from there (Pho Cafe). Would make it worth the trip!

    The guy on the unicycle is my new hero!
