Welcome to Francis Street in Lorne. I've ridden a few steep hills before, I've even made it all the way up the Templestowe Hill Climb here in Melbourne. What I wasn't prepared for on Francis St was the 2 minutes of climbing BEFORE it gets really really crazy steep! What a monster of a climb.

Shane, I have been watching your videos for a while - and I'm not one to comment on videos (much)... You have great content and they are all great... but this one !!! I had to stop and let you know, I feel like I was enduring the pain... what a climb... I could almost feel it and the funny thing is, I said out loud to my daughter next to me - "at this point I would had died on the floor" and 3 second later you drop on your bike... so we both burst in laughter... That was an amazing little climb sir... wow...

Thanks for the great content all the time... and thank you for this climb... :)

I remember driving up there in the 70's before it was sealed. Our Kingswood had the power but not the traction to get up that section after the last corner. It was pretty scarey as a kid!

Well done Shane! From the looks of it, I'm pretty sure you could've gotten to the top if your wheel hadn't gotten trapped in the valley of the gutter at 2:41. Keep trying!

When you said "36/28" you meant 36 rear cog and 28 chainring, right?! 😜

Sincerely though, heroic effort. 😊

Should consider doing the Dirty Dozen in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania if you're a hill climb masochist 😵

36-28, no where near enough! Roadlink and 40 cassette with 34 up front minimum! Maybe even mountain bike cranks fitted!
