Eldred has a gradient of 33.3% and is thought to be the third steepest street in the whole of the US. This one’s definitely not for learner drivers!

I'm a Classics graduate and have been writing for over three years. Hopefully going to go into novel writing some day. I'm mostly interested in theme parks and roller coasters - I've been on 300 coasters and plan on going on lots more!
