Mt. Washington Auto Road Bike Race - Aug 16, 2008

Perhaps the toughest hill climb in the world.  7.6 miles at 12% grade, extended sections at 18% and the last yards at 22%.  You can only cycle up it, you cannot cycle down (need proof that you have a ride in a car down before you can go up).  Limited to 600 cyclists and sellout fast.

I drove this last year and it was scarier going up than driving down!  People who are afraid of heights or not good drivers, do not drive on this road!
