Fargo Street Hill Climb- March 14, 2010, 9:00 AM.

Holy crap. How many times in one day can you climb the steepest street in L.A.? Well, thats what the LA Wheelmen want to know.
This Sunday at 9am, Fargo Street hill climb challenge. It's only one block long, but Fargo Street, with its 32% grade, equals the steepest street incline in Los Angeles. Climb, descend, climb, descend, until your legs can't take it anymore...
A little trivia: In 2008, Steve Gilmore set the men's record of 101 ascents, which took him 9 hours. GODDAMN thats alot of climbing!

Here's photo's from last year from Dan Wyman
