Not trying to Bogart the sidebar, but . . .

I'm going to do my annual Port Royal Avenue hillclimb this weekend in honor of De Ronde.  For those unfamiliar with it, Port Royal Avenue is a cobbled berg in Philly just off the Schuykill River bike path.

It starts here:

It is steep and rough, but not very long, very much in the spirit of Flanders--according to Google Maps, it climbs a bit over 300' in 1 mile, for an average of 5.6%, but is quite steep at the bottom (cobbled) end, about 12.6%.  It is also in such poor condition that I no longer descend it, though I descend like ~:>, Sastre, or a little girl.

So who else is riding their Hellingen this weekend?
