That coastal segment is sweet, but wow, no shoulder to ride on at all.
I do not know the Grade of that climb, but it is Very steep. I sure wasnt prepared for it and before I knew It I was almost at a standstill before I got my foot off the pedal . Yes bad choice on my part with the gearing. I left a corncobb on my rear wheel so I was in a 42 X 18 when I hit the bottom of the climb which made for quite the struggle at the start. I finally got it going though.

Great day and it was Safe riding all day long.
