Gibraltar Road – GCN's Epic Climbs

Description

Gibraltar Road in Santa Barbara is one of California’s most iconic climbs. Click here to subscribe to GCN: http://gcn.eu/SubscribeToGCN Over six miles, Gibraltar Road in Santa Barbara weaves its way up from the coastal city to an altitude of 3,500 feet, with an average gradient of 8 percent. The climb winds up the Santa Ynez coastal range, with a view of the ocean and the Channel Islands, as well as the Manzanita trees of the Los Padres Forest. And while it’s also been known to cyclists for its incredibly rough road surface, city officials repaved the road just weeks after our visit in March 2015. Have you ridden this climb?
