    short & fun. a lap is about 7 miles.

    some steep climbing that’ll be hard work on a singlespeed.

    I’ll second that. I’ll even admit to walking up hell’s teeth on the 2nd and 3rd loop

    but you don’t have to do the Hells teeth climb -some say the reward isn’t worth it anyway

    The climb is its own reward, doable on SS (just! Last few metres are proper hard on one)

    do a few laps and you’ll be giggling 🙂

    I did 2 evening laps in Aug when on hols, well recommended… how you can do hells teeth on a SS I do not know….! Need bigger legs…

    Bloody mindedness, and tacking for the really steep bits to lessen the gradient, treat it as a challenge, even if you don’t make it gives you a spot to try and get past next time!

    I loved it for a quick blast on holiday.

    I enjoyed it, my dad lives in Bodmin so took the bikes down when I went to see him last. Again needed two laps to make it worth my while but you drop into the and climb out of the valley a lot. Strava shows 475 meters of climbing over 2 laps.
