«No Such Thing As Can't»

These are a few pictures I took previously of Schoenbar Road hill back on April 21, 2008. The first picture I've posted before. At the bottom of this hill you see the words "NO SUCH THING AS CAN'T" inset into the concrete. Click an image to view full.
No such thing as can't
Those words have a whole new meaning to me now... I've climbed that hill on a bicycle.

Here's 2 pictures of the hill I didn't show before. The gates are so they can close the road during the winter.
Looking downhill.
Gates, looking uphill.
You see this sign at the top of the hill. Caution steep hill walk bicycle. Well, I didn't need to walk the bicycle on my way up the hill. There was no sign at the bottom of the hill saying that...
Caution steep hill walk bicycle.
I tell you what... This town is tough to ride a bicycle in. My leg muscles were all puffed up when I got home after climbing this hill.


  1. Google maps shows this gaining a little more than 500 feet elevation in 1,700 feet of riding ... about a 30% grade. Way to go!

  2. @ Trevor: I also went up to the dump... That same friggin' day.

    @ Looney: 30% sounds about right. It's one of the steeper hills in town, though not the longest. How did you find that out using Google maps? I wouldn't mind figuring out the grade of a few other hills I've either already climbed or want to.


Thanks for taking the time to comment.
