They missed the best bit! Pateley Bridge to Grassington. Starts with a thousand foot climb over two miles and then gets hilly. Sad about that but its putting cycling on the map again and I will be one of the ones at the side of the road. No way am I going to miss that.We shall be there!!!


I remember that climb - Greenhow. Ridden it in road races. Full bunch at the bottom, ones and twos over the top. A hard man's climb :wink:

Thats the one. We had hoped that we could have timed the peleton from the bottom to the top to see what the fast men could do it in. give the local lads something to aim for.Not the end of the World but sad all the same

I'm already mentally preparing myself for dropping 160+ places on Strava on several local climbs.
