If you haven't ridden Hypervent you need to get on your bike and go there right now. It is a world class climb. Beautifully built, with switchbacks that are all rideable, but hard to get all of them right without putting a foot down. The top has a bench with great views out in all directions. If you are feeling especially in shape then take the right hand fork at the start. Pretty much the steepest bit of trail that is actually rideable on a bike anywhere.
