One one of the things I like about living here is that we have tons of terrain and hills that get steep, most are over in 4-5 minutes but there are others that take a while. Its not hard to find a short hill that gets over 10%.
Yeah, I'm about 185. I'm sure that I could manage, I just need the gearing and, maybe the most difficult part, I'd have to get comfortable with going slow.
