Tips

  • Konrad

    This great climb is used in the Chorley Grand Prix road race held in April. From the reservoir at Rivington it starts with a steep section to the cattle grid. You're then treated to a flat and rolling section before another steep grind to a sharp left hand corner. You're not done yet as there is a gentle rise before a final short steep kicker. Relax now on a fast descent to the main road at Belmont.

  • Bit of a climb up from Belmont road, amazing views once you're at the top then a fast but not too gnarly descent back down into Rivington.

  • After the grind up, in fact its the section before that's harder than the top bit, don't go too hard tho as the downhill is mega fast!
