Because after the finish all the suffering turns to memories of pleasure, and the greater the suffering, the greater the
pleasure. That is Nature's payback to riders for the homage they pay her by suffering.

Tim Krabbé, The Rider

Welcome to BRENTACOL. This database contains information for cycling on hills throughout New England and the United States, with an emphasis on Rhode Island (because that's where I live, not because it's such a great place for climbing.) Browse the map below, view in list format or search for a specific one.

The map is auto-centered to your location. You may not find many hills if you don't live in Rhode Island. The tags are color coded by the hill's BRENTACOL ranking, according to the TSA Terror Alert Scheme. (Green, easy; Blue, moderate; Yellow, hard; Orange, wicked hard; Red, you're screwed.)
