How hard is this climb? It's BRUTALLY STEEP.
For Engineers, we recommend studying the Engineering Analysis.
The riders were greeted by a COLD ARCTIC CHILL which made the climb outstanding because usually it is very warm on this section of the course. More than one rider have "left their legs" on this climb.
How cold was it?
At 7:48 A.M., it was 47 Degrees at Rest Stop 1 in Beaumont.
At 9:00 A.M., it was 41 Degrees near the top of the Oak Glen Climb.
At 10:25 A.M., it was 39 Degrees at the top of the Oak Glen Climb.
Everyone was glad to have all of the cold weather gear that they brought for that awesome Oak Glen descent!!
While suffering through the steepest part of nearly 12% grades, these riders saw the Grim Reaper who greeted them while dancing to Billy Idol's "White Wedding" and some great tunes by Bachman Turner Overdrive as they were "Taking Care of Business" ... or was it only in their imagination?
Rest Stop 2 was made possible thanks to the hard work of Steve "Wonder" Patterson, Doug Patterson, Becky Boyle, Lori Burrill, Chuck Phillips, Laurie Ostrow, Scott Naide, and Denise Cooper who can be seen at the end of Chuck's photos above. Thanks so much for helping us out!!
