Mines is a nice ride, but boy was it long (>20miles). There's stretches of climbs, rolling hills, and flats. I personally thought it was tough, especially the beginning part, where you start climbing right off the bat. The tough grades were close to 10%, with an average of 8% everywhere else, with long and short pauses of rolling and flat roads. I never rode Hamilton backside, which I heard was tougher than the front (San Jose) side. On my end, I haven't done much sustained climbing (more than 10 uphill miles) these past few days, so I think I'll pass..have fun, hydrate and be safe!
