It started with a Facebook message. So many rides do these days. This one started "Going to the peaks on Saturday the 19th March...." and concluded with "...thinking 80/100 miles with lots of hills". How could I resist, I had already planned a suitable route ages ago, I just needed a Saturday to deploy it into! 590

The hardest road climb in England? #55 Rosedale Chimney

Rosedale Chimney Bank Climb August 2015

It's not the longest climb, it's not the climb boasting the greatest elevation gain either and it's also not the climb at the highest altitude but. I'm tempted just to leave it at that; just a lingering 'but'. If Rosedale Chimney isn't the steepest climb in the UK then it's pretty well close to it! 413

First “Cafe Stop” ride of the year.
