For popular Bay Area routes, Klimb has lots of useful information.

Klimb is the only free mapping program with reasonably accurate gradient and cumulative elevation gain data. All of the Google-based mapping programs are extremely terrible for gradient and cumulative elevation gain.

+1 and you can edit the data points to add your own GPS tracks for any roads that aren't listed.

Klimb looks great, but doesn't cover my area. Map My Ride gave me some ball park numbers. Thanks again!

MapMyRide is extremely inaccurate for gradient. You can do a much much better job by just looking at the hill and guessing.
