Mt Diablo South
Diablo, CA, USA
About the ride
Another Tour of California favourite, This is a challenging climb with lots of gradient changes in the first half, then a steady grind towards the summit. The final couple of hundred metres packs a serious punch, so don’t say you haven’t been warned!Terrain - A few short rests on the way up, typically 7 to 9% grade until the last couple of minutes, which is a killer!
This is a long steady climb, so pacing is crucial. Try to build your power output over time so you're going stronger near the top than you were at the bottom. This takes a bit of practice, but ultimately it's the fastest way to the top
