Ha, plus your hills aren't really fun on a single speed. I used to live in Laguna Beach, 1000 feet up but only 1.5 miles on the road. Two of the old Rock Racing guys lived in my neighborhood and I swear they could hold 20 mph up that whole hill.
I do miss that greatly, excellent riding on PCH and I had canyon trails literally out of my door.
