A new Lowkey Climb! Coming in as the second most popular climb on Strava we were compelled to add it to our list.
Start of the climb is at the corner of Hiller rd. and Tunnel Rd. Average gradient is under 5% with a length of only 3 miles. That said, anybody can do this climb! At the start of the climb there is a memorial for the past Oakland fire which will serve as a nice shaded spot to meet up (10AM Saturday) with fellow team-mates or others to do the climb with (2299 Tunnel Rd, Oakland, CA 94618).
You will be rewarded with great views at the top and can do a nice post ride with great roads with incredible views of the Bay.
Rule 1 is be safe and stay healthy!
Join the Strava Low-Key Hillclimbers Club to get your time recorded "automatically". Or message/email your time to Brandon, or post it on Facebook LKHC group.The Facebook LKHC group is also a good place to get the latest announcements and discussions.
If you have not been vaccinated or have indications that you might be positive, please ride alone, and do not come to the mass start or ride in any groups!
Sorry, folks! We require all riders wear helmets during the climb, and we follow the USA Cycling rule against ear buds or other head phones. Rock to tunes before the climb, perhaps, but we need riders to pay attention to what's happening during the climb...
Low-Key is all about a group of friends riding up a hill together. It's like any other informal group ride, except we time you to the top and report the results on our web site. But we have no road closures, no lead vehicle, no follow vehicle. We are traffic, sharing the roads with other traffic, following the laws and courtesy which applies to traffic. This includes riding to the right of the road when practicable, and not crossing double yellows to pass riders or to get through corners faster. We're each responsible for our own actions out there, on and off the bike, both as users of the road as as courteous visitors to the neighborhoods we pass through. "Ceci n'est pas un race".
