Fair enough. Personally, I have to climb over a railroad overpass to get anywhere and my parking garage features a wonderfully bike-friendly steeper-than-hell entrance/exit which, because of the door remote not activating it until you're practically next to it and the door being slower than hell, means you practically have to start climbing from a stand-still.

Also I live right on the lake and the entire city is pretty much uphill as you head north.

So yeah, no monster rings for me...
