tried bains road today, ive done it a few times before but im not as fit as i was then. its not a long hill but it sure seems steep, especially on my 6 speed early 90's roadie. Anyone rode it and what do you think.

not done bains, but love doing Coxs Hill Road. Good 7km climb, and always pass Bains on the way down thinking I should give it a crack.

Bains and Coxs Hill Road is down south. Woodcroft, Happy Valley way.
To get there you can:
Travel up the ever so fun Chandlers hill for a few km's and throw a right at the top. Keep right and you find yourself on Coxs Hill. Its actually much more fun not taking the 9% pitch up chandlers and going from the other direction for a much longer but less steep climb.

OR

Travel up Panatalinga Road and just keep going, and going, and going. It a pretty cool loop, and Bains Road meets Coxs Hill pretty much at the peak of the climb.

thanks Brett, not my neck of the woods (thanks Braulover) at all, but funnily enough my sister lives just off Chandlers Hill Rd, so at least I've got a clue where you're talking about.

Careful now...we wouldn't want to overuse it and have it becomes cliched :P
