That's as good a definition of a retrobiker as I have seen.

I can't find the graphic of the course profile, but I did find this:

Quote:
11.4km lap with 380m of climbing per lap, steepest 21.2% up and 21.3% down, average gradient 6.6% up and 6.2% down


If correct, then that is useful to know.

1200 ft of climbing in 7 miles averaging 6 % sounds like fun for 24 hours :facepalm: :lol:

Shame organisers can't make the laps more enjoyable and use the actual "24 hour" as being more the challenge. Always felt with Eastnor they designed the route to just be an unenjoyable slog no matter what the weather.

(Saturday morning and moaning already!! :lol: )
