NEWSWIRE: Steepest Streets List

I found this webpage of steepest streets pretty interesting and fun and wanted to share it (be sure to check out the comments, videos and shots of cyclists and runners challenging the climbs). Here in Santa Cruz County, California, I'd say Bayona or Escalona, on the westside of town, and Rampart Road over in Watsonville, are among our steepest streets. On Rampart it's fun to ride down it to record your highest maximum speed on your computer. Without even pedaling at the top you will hit about 63 mph on a road-racing bike!
