This is the second year they've held this but my first time to spectate yesterday. Pretty cool and fun day. A little bit of everything.

Thanks!
I couldn't really hear the announcements clearly from where I was hanging out as it was echoing off the houses. So I didn't get times.
Definitely an event to check out. I'll probably be there next year again.

Cool! Looks like a fun time.

I doubt I could get up that hill on ANY bike, including an e-bike.

Looked like a fun event. Great pics as well. The guys in the hot pink suits on the hot pink tandem and the guy on the BMX must have gotten lots of cheers.

Shafer-Ranch Road off of the Dublin Grade is almost a quarter mile of 16% over most of it and the top 100 feet is 13%. A friend of mine took me on a road in Novato that was 24% for a block. It was all I could do to turn the pedals.

I think that 17th St. in San Francisco must be around 20% since the sidewalk has steps on it rather than a straight walk.
