It was a fun little blast, I enjoyed that, thanks Nick, and I only equaled your best time up church hill, but 2 other people have quicker times so we will have to try harder next time.

i hope you were gentle with Mark2 aka waggoner?

Edit PS
Is that right you want another try for Tintern next week?
Dam that means I will have to do my rain dance again.

No journey is wasted when there is Coffee with Steve and Nick and Mark2 at the end of it.

Sometimes your chain jumps off and you have to stop to put chain back on .This does not count as stopping this is 'Force Majeure' and as such doesn't count.

It was on Mumbleys Hill - don't worry you're not the first to have walked it (inc. myself although I blame it on the back wheel slipping... :p ).

You're probably looking at a different one - it's just that steep but short one on the normal loop I do. Would be an interesting one to Strava although the best start/end place is debatable (I couldn't imagine doing it full gas right from the junction to the house at the top without needing medical assistance).

oh bugger - that means there are 2 evil hills :-)

Mumbleys

The bit coming up from the B4461 and meeting your hill from the right looks particularly nasty ....

@Jam
Mumbleys is the one I walked up with a certain young Master Mills not the old one the other one.Yes the other is not to nice either.
Try going from Tockington from the triangle turn right then left up that one as well he goes on.Almost as bad as the one from tockington heading east and then up to the A38.

@Andy - nah not Strava'd it yet (mostly as I don't like the climb so not something I'd relish a challenge on :p ). The Church road climb is much nicer IMO, short enough you can really attack it (without PJ levels of fitness) and stay standing and in the big ring that one's on Strava now.

@John - always wondered where that road comes out, might check it out soon

@Scott - yeah that climb is pretty evil going East up onto the A38, only done it a couple of times though as coming out onto the A38 isn't great

BTW my monthly report is due tomorrow morning so I'm busy procrastinating (unless that's an oxymoron ;p )
