it's not very pleasant but it's not meant to be is it. Its only about 150m long and I can either turn around and roll back down or do a little loop that I have.
The loop starts at the bottom of the climb up to the top, I turn right then continue up a further 150m at 9% where you go round a one way system that is flat. I then shoot down a hill and turn left at the bottom. Turn on to a main road and ride along this for 300m. I then turn into my street and immediately off it up a steep cobbled climb. 15% for about 200m. This takes me to a very short downhill down some single track, over a railway bridge and back to the start.
Sprinting up this hill is not so good on my full sus MTB. When I get my hardtail 29er I should be able to put the gas down a bit better. I look forward to it. It's nice to get out for 30 mins or so and do some real hard training.
