We did that ride in 2003. Paia to the top. Completely self-supported. I took a wrong turn in Kula and added several miles. THE HARDEST RIDE WE HAVE EVER DONE! Many times on the ride I was ready to turn around. My stoker kept cheering me on. I think it took us 9 hours elapsed time for the climb. About 2 hours descending. I was so tired when we got down I could barely sit up to eat dinner.

I think that is considered the longest paved climb in the world.
