- 20% ish hills in the Peak
Are you just looking to tick off some classics or stringing a route together? Winnat’s Pass is an obvious contender, with some great surrounding roads to build into a route. However if you want something quieter and less obvious, you could do worse than head into the Staffordshire Moorlands. Plenty of little gems there.Posted 4 years agogonetothehillsSubscriber
Around Macclesfield, follow the Route 70 signs: Blaze Hill out of Bollington then the aforementioned Ankers Lane up from Lamaload Res a few miles later. Cross straight over the Cat & Fiddle road and run along Wildboarclough Valley. Hang a right up through Sutton End and that’s three good ones in less than 10 miles. You could loop back and do that Macc Forest climb too; that route up through the forest on Toot Hill is a killer.Posted 4 years agorobdobMember
It’s West Yorkshire you need to come to mate, 20% round here is average. 🙁
Shibden Wall to start you on, then head off down to Keighley then the Calder valley to finish you off.
I drive down a lot of out of the way roads round these parts for my job and I went down a road which was cobbled but at the bottom was so steep I had to have 3 goes getting round it as I thought I was going to ground the car.Posted 4 years agosimon1975Subscriber
I’d check with Mike at Peli Deli as to which route they’re doing, and how hard it’ll be. The start venue and ride description are different on the official leaflet, too:Posted 4 years ago
