Welcome to BRENTACOL. This site is an off-shoot of my humble blog where I endeavored to catalog, comment on and provide gradient information for the climbs I do on my bike. I have cataloged the hills in my local area of Rhode Island quite exhaustively. Beyond Rhode Island, I have started cataloging other hills I have done that are either particularly interesting or difficult. Some I have done, some I have not.
As this site progresses, I hope to keep adding hills. If there is a hill in your local area that you think should be listed, let me know. If you can convince me of the importance or difficulty of the climb, I may do it for free. If not, I am always willing to catalog your climb and provide you with a nice gradient map of your favorite climb in exchange for a donation to the site. In addition, the ability to properly generate a gradient map and calculate gradient information is dependent on the data provided by Ride With GPS which is in turn dependent on the information it gets from the National Geological Survey and/or Google Maps. The data is great for some areas, but not for others, and is not always available. If you really want to see what's going on with the site in terms of programming (though I'll also be mentioning new hills here as well), please watch the blog.
