Just registered with the `climbbybike` site, loads of information. Cheers.

mapmyrun.com will show gradiants, although it tends to average out the gradiant if you're plotting a long route - some of the climbs near me with 20%+ sections only show as a constant 4%/5% over the length of the hill.

Definitely. Strava is close to useless sometimes, I know many local segments which are uphill according to Strava but in reality are actually flat or downhill. bikehike shows you pretty accurate elevation profiles and gradients, it's a really nice site.
