rodge-nice work on the tunitas video. guys, u cud tell this was no slouch ride w all that hevy group breathing..from the climbs i've been 2 so far mt.hamilton, diablo, sierra, kings, oldlahonda, palomares, i thought this was 2nd only to sierra in difficulty (long climb w very steep sections), and that's just my 2-cents, let me know what u think (but it cud also be that i've been off the bike for a couple of months) cheers! manny.

in all fairness, we did climb old la honda b4 climbing tunitas, and old lahonda is steeper but shorter..so we're looking at a combined total of a 10 mile, winding climb. csr did mention that page mill is steeper than tunitas, so it's probably just me and my recent haitus from biking..:-)

That breathing seems like a long hiatus from climbing. Anyway, job well done.

TonyM, getting over that steep hill was definitely a breath, push, pull cycle...doesn't it remind u of that class we took with our lady bosses way back when, i believe it was called LaMas (hindi laamas sa tagalog, that's way b4 LaMas:p)
