    I saw the Mount Wallace north of Geelong had some riders walking again yesterday in the Womens tour. What is the gradient of said mount? I looks like a killer!

    I reckon the steepest pinch might be pushing 20%, but it ain't walking territory they're all soft!

    Lama- I may be racing saturday due to the early start, yehaa!!!

    Bashed it out on bikely to have a look. If it is accurate, it rises ~ 100 m over ~500 m = 20%.

    Don't forget to remove the front basket & tassles either.

    but the basket is the best place for the Powerbars(tm) though!



    (one day I'll get cash/goods for comments around this place!)
