Story by Bryan from Ottawa, Canada, submitted on 02/04/2009
Short, but steep! I rode up in early Oct/08. Not great weather at the base, and really, REALLY cold at the top. I over-heated on the early sections, and then froze my pants off once I got past the hairpin about 1.5 km from the top.
There are a couple very steep sections. One sign on the way down said 18% - thats about 1.5 km in to the climb. The other steep section is just after the split in the road.
Id try it again in better weather, but Id want something smaller than the 39x30 I was using.
