Hey all, I've entered the Grand Raid Cristalp in August (been wanting to do it for years, and have finally got the "OK"), and there's 5000m of climbing involved. Living in leafy (but flattish) Warwickshire, I need some days away doing some big hills.
I am after hills with climbs (on road or off road but rideable) of at least 300m, within a couple of hours drive.
What is there in Wales, Peak or Lakes that could satisfy my needs?
(I am thinking of the Bwlch in S Wales, Skiddaw and Walna Scar - any other ideas?)
Not fussed about making big loops, as it is not the mileage I need, but rides where I can do reps of big hills. Anyone got any day rides with 3000m+ of climbing?
