Local to me, a beach road, chickened out on the tourer
40% = 22 degrees.........this is 26 degrees at an angle which makes it appear steeper, so its less than that but not much, need to measure accurately.
Cary Arms pub at babacombe torquay, is stated as 30% but measured steepest at 22 degrees which is 40% today, its a road all traffic to the beach with a car park at the bottom.
The pic above is a tarmac road which is now closed to traffic.
Went down there today and it is 23-24 degrees which is 44.5 %
Acxtually measured 27 degrees, but the phone will easily fit between the bumps in road
I am still chickening out getting up, I went down today on bike and managed to stop before the hand rail into the sea by 4 feet.
I reckon I could get up their when I grow some.
Slippy as heck today......................my mate did not believe me it was steep so he went down in the dark
He never made it to the bottom but ditched bike into hedge as he could not stop......in the dark yeh.
