Another evening ride from Basel. After a brief warm up out to Dornach I started up the Hochwald. As soon as you turn off Gempenstrasse onto Hochwaldstrasse it starts climbing steeply and it is unrelenting all the way to the top. There is one point about 2/3 way up where it seems to ease off. This is probably the steepest false flat I've ever ridden, as it merely serves to announce the change in gradient from 9% to 11%. It may only be 3.4km long but the sustained gradient makes it a proper challenge
