Gibraltar Road

Santa Barbara, California, USA


There's never a dull moment on this climb, and it's filmed near sunset to it looks even more dramatic. Look out for the dude on a skateboard riding down it. Close in distance and gradient to l'Alpe d'Huez. This is a favourite training and testing climb for top pros and local riders alike. It’s a beautiful climb with incredible views over the Californian coast. If it feels steep, that’s because it is! The road surface get’s steadily worse as you climb up, so much so that I almost crashed riding back down after filming it.Terrain - Long, steep mountain with very few opportunities for recovery anywhere
