I think about 15-20%. I can only tell by my perceived effort and HR.

I find it a joy to be on something smooth, a rare occurrence here in Camarillo, CA.

Depending on how rough it is, I find it more difficult to maintain good technic is my problem especially if you're dodging cracks and holes. I've caught wheels in cracks and that is not fun and wakes you up in a hurry. 15-20% makes sense.
