  • 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

  • Hogtrough

    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.
