I live in Florida and the only hills I have are intercoastal waterway bridges and only one bridge has a steep incline that I feel prevents the bike from making it. My thought is if I am a half mile back and I can gun it to 40 mph will there be enough momentum for it to make it the rest of the way up? http://bridgemonitoring.com/bridges/SR520/SR520.htm
Dont know if you can make it out but one side has a long gentle climb and the other side is quite steep, well, steep for a flatlander! lol.
