I think you are entitled to a chapeau!
BTW, what gear were you using?
Ferrit worrier's link is interesting in that only one of the streets in the list is shown as steeper than 20%. It raises the old question about how they work out gradients on road signs.
It was some time ago so probably a 26 inner with a 28 or 30 max on the back, with 26" wheels.
come on people, show us your pics riding up these slopes.
