Online list of hills that have been categorised? where are all the cat1s?
You’d be going well to climb AdH in much less than an hour. Even the best climbing pros take 40 minutes.
(Can you tell I just missed out? Did it in 1.02 earlier this year!)
My mate big ringed it in about 50 minutes, although there was a chapn on our campsite who’d done under 50. I found it alot harder than last year having lost fitness and put on about 2 stone!Posted 4 years agodevsMember
Which is the mans route? Is that the one that involves 160mm of travel, fat tyres and body armour?
Angry roadie is angry. I just ride it on my hardtail with Pikes and no protection other than my helmet but you may need to take extra kit. Like a degorger for the hooks for starters.Posted 4 years agovondallySubscriber

Hardest I’ve done in Scotland was Loch Shiel up and over to Strontian, but it was short.
Old military road climb is a Hors Cat.
Its at the top of Loch Long in Scotland.
The Rest and Be Thankful? Its a nice climb and makes part of a good route with two or three other nicer climbs, but its probably not even in the top ten of Scottish climbs? (not dissing it, one of my regular favourite routes took in the RABT)Posted 4 years ago

Nah, have a look at it. I can’t say I’ve ever been up it or if it is all rideable I just came across it while looking around the area.
4.2 miles long, 12.3% average and 2768ft of elevation gain.Posted 4 years ago
Yeah, that’s a hillwalk/off road route. People on here talk regularly about cycling up the Cobbler (Ben Arthur) which would probably fit those stats!
2768ft is close to Munro height, we’ve not got any roads in Scotland above 2300ft that I’m aware of, the highest being south of Peebles topping out at a Radar Station.Posted 4 years agonammynakeMember
Never seen any Cat 1 road climbs in the UK. Biggest climb I’ve done is the Cat 2 Great Dun Fell (4.6 miles at 8.4%) but I find the shorter/steeper ones such as Hardknott much much tougher.Posted 4 years agojekkylMember
I’m on the case now in my local area, I’ve been out tonight and a lot of the bastard hard climbs that I know of are not segmented so I need to go cycle up them and see what they come in at. I’m thinking I’ll be KOM on a few because no-one else would be mad enough to cycle up ’em. So I’ll go out all the time on a mission!Posted 4 years ago
