Cycling Wilhelmina Rise, Honolulu
Ride UP .8 miles gaining 601’ at 15% average grade!
View at the top - Diamond Head in view on the descent.
This is the steepest bike climb in Honolulu and is quite the beast. Turning off of Waialae Avenue onto Wilhelmina Rise we see in the distance an intimidating wall rising up in front of us.
This climb reminds us of our some of the steepest streets in San Francisco although it never hits the 30% marks as so many of those in San Francisco do.
Half way up - Diamond Head behind us.
Hard to see but that’s a 26% read!
A compact chain ring and at least a 32t is recommended for all but the elite cyclists.
