    Steep ratio today, with an extra-tough dose of steepness on the Crows Nest! Have you checked out Roadrunner yet?

    Roman, I will check it out. Are you saying that it is even steeper than this one? What gearing did you use when you did Crow's Nest? The 32 made it barely bearable to complete. I really started out slow on the easy part. A fast start up that part might have given me a chance for my first KOM.

    Greg, it's not steeper, but it's plenty steep, and it's longer. Here's the seg: https://www.strava.com/segments/9447775

    I can't remember exactly what gearing I had when I did Crow's. I have a 34 small ring; the back cog would have been either a 27 or 29. I remember thinking I might have broke my bike with all the torque I was putting into the frame.

    Roman, Thanks! I think I know this road. I'm going to have to give it a go. Maybe sometime next week on my way home from work. Tomorrow, I'm going for my first Double Century event since 2007 (other than rando events) Maybe even a Monday recovery climb. LOL! Thanks buddy for the info.
