I totally agree. Clarks is the least worst option.
I love Star Hill fwiw, always the best way home, especially if you head down Rushmore Hill.
@Hovis spare kicker...
I will return to the indoor lyf in October.
Soz, I thought it was obvious that you would have multiple kickrs
To be fair one is in devon. Which is quite inconvenient.
Have you done a session on it yet?
Yeah it was great. Much better experience in both quality of the turbo feel vs the old direto, and also the rocky business.
Bit hot for it though
Ok, for the pendants amongst us; specifically: Sundridge, Hogtrough and Brasted. I have an aversion to anything that kicks over 15%.
Although I now have 36/28 on one of my bikes so I might raise my gradient aversion by a few degrees.
Sundridge has shade at least, 34-32 for the win
I absolutely despise that hill. By far the most ugly and boring of the three.
I'd take multiple Brasted and Sundridge reps over one climb of Hogtrough.
Easiest of the 3 as it gets the hard bit out of the way early. Plus the bluebells in the wooded section are beautiful! (When they haven't been flytipped).
Good one for going down though (as long as your brakes work). Lovely view opens up as you come round that final corner.
And the ice after pilgrims when winters are less clement.
This morning was a bit unpleasant.
Have found that my cannondale appears to be faster than my specialized.
More testing is warranted.
