Tips

  • 51m

    The Rake is a classic short and steep hill climb. It's been used in the British Hill Climbing championships three times and has also featured in the Tour of Britain.
    Less than 1km in length but with a max gradient of 22% it's lung busting!

    Don't attack too hard at the start.. leave some in the tank for the right turn midway up.. you'll need it!!!

    Don’t look up! Good pub at the top too.
