I would say, it's a definite maybe
There is one hill going in from Swansea that is kinda steep and a wee bit loose. It's not as steep as the Cerro Gordo side, however there is less traction.
I would try it (especially on your bike),but I do lots of stupid stuff. One question. What's it like turning that thing around mid hill?

Here's the hill we are talking about.
