Top Bike Climbs in The United States





     In 2010, our law firm (Perry, Johnson, Anderson, Miller & Moskowitz) created what we thought were some pretty cool jerseys.  The logo was a cyclist climbing up a  volcano (yep - it's always been about climbing) and the slogan Citius, Altius, Fortius (the Olympic motto - faster, higher, stronger - thank you for that Jeremy Olsan!).    Well, the jerseys became a club and the club became philanthropic (sponsoring, participating and/or contributing to local meaningful rides such as the local junior cycling  team [Team Swift] and the Law Enforcement Chaplaincy Service of Sonoma County).

     That's the story about the name.  As a disclaimer, PJAMM Cycling is a completely separate and independent entity from PJAMM Law.  But, I love the firm, my  partners and cycling, so, hey, I'm sticking with what brought us to the dance!   If you need, or are ever in need of, high quality professional legal assistance in almost any  area of the law, give us the opportunity to represent you - check us out at ​ or me during my day job at John Johnson  - the attorneys at this firm, their commitment to the practice of law and their  abilities are second to none - they are to the law what pjammcycling is to climbing by road bike. 

​ Some of our cycling-related work:

     Jeremy Olsan is an AV rated attorney and represents Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition, a non-profit that works to make Sonoma County a great place to ride a bike  through advocacy and education.   The Bicycle Coalition website has a valuable information about rides and road conditions in Sonoma County, so we hope you enjoy it  and can find a way to share it has a ton of information about rides and road conditions in Sonoma County, so we hope you enjoy it and can find a way to share it with the  SCBC membership.

     David (Max) Beach is an AV rated attorney on the Board of Directors for Team Swift, a top-tier junior cycling development program based in Sonoma County     and  also assisted in developing of VeloMed (unique group of doctors which volunteer on-road medical support at cycling rides and events).

     Mike Miller and Bill Anderson - ABOTA members and AV rated attorneys have represented injured cyclists and secured substantial awards on their behalf. 

Welcome cyclists who enjoy climbing and are interested in climbing the most challenging ascents by bike in your area, state or the United States, or just reading about them.  We have created an index that ranks the Top 100 Climbs in the United States.  However, we know that we do not have all of the top climbs (we are pretty sure the Top 10 is set, but you never know). ​    

​ We would like to create and have available to all cyclists a reliable, trustworthy and accurate website that lists and describes the top climbs in the United States.  To do this, we need your help and input - the "It Takes a Village to Create a Top 100 Climbs Resource" theory!        

If you know of a climb that you feel should be in the Top 100 (or our Honorable Mention list), we would appreciate you taking the time to fill out and submit the "Climb Contribution Form" on the "Climb Contribution" page of our website.

PJAMM Cycling's second primary objective is to generate contributions for non-profit and charitable organizations we support and are committed to, such as Make-a-Wish Foundation, Law Enforcement Chaplaincy Program, Team Swift (junior cycling development), etc. ​
