Could turn into a real bottleneck situation for the cars/trucks later...
If your talking about the Summit, going down the east side is the easy part, you would be surprised how fast the cars/trucks go down that. It's the going up the west side that can be hard for the slower classes. That could be a real pain for the bikes in the dark too, there are some BIG rocks on the steep climb.
