Santa Rosa Creek Road
Here I am posing at the start of Santa Rosa Creek Road off Main Street in Cambria. Yeah, I'm bad. Particularly on flat stretches .... The first part of this climb is maybe 4 percent or so. Here's Kirby James pictorial blog. Lovely green compared to our hot summer wheat colored rolling hills.
I think I'll take a break and shoot photos of The BF from the behind ....

Give you some idea of this climb. While we hit some short steep pitches (20%?), it doesn't hold up against something like Sierra Road, which is much much harder. But it's a wonderful ride, quiet, in the middle of nowhere.
Then again, look at me, about to keel over. Yeah, I'm bad. Not. After climbing Santa Rosa Creek Road, we had a wonderful descent on Hwy 46.
