INTRO

A narrow road with 11 hairpins on a steep grade and sometimes treacherous weather conditions - my kinda bike climb. 👍👍  This exceptional bike climb is on the very popular, but somewhat cycle-risky, roadway that is very popular with tourists for its surrounding scenery and viewpoints at the top. During tourist season, roughly 2,500 vehicles climb this road. Due to its narrow width and 11 sharp and steep hairpins, the roadway is off limits to vehicles exceeding 13 meters (43’).  
Average grade is 7.7%.  The climb is remarkably consistent with 90% being in the 5-10% gradient range.  The steepest 500 meters is 9%.
