You have paid your rates, taxes & rego to straighten out roads like this. Now do you want to ride UP or DOWN this road.
Up. Down does nothing for me.
This was probably one of the most memorable climbs I rode up -
... most of the last 14km @ 6.5% is paved with cobblestones!
... because the tunnel through the Alps had superseded it as the main thoroughfare, and they turned it into the tourist road.
I wanted to give up, and ride back down again it was so difficult.
St Gotthard Pass (2091m) in Switzerland
A climb like that in Adelaide would really be something!!!
Just wheeling my bike up that would be a challenge!
