Mytholmroyd Community Centre. Open 18:00
The HQ is located just to the west of the junction of the Cragg Vale Road (B6138) and the A646 Burnley Road, Mytholmroyd. Cross the bridge on the south side of A646, over the River Calder, to enter the car park. Result board will be located here. Phone reception at the top of the hill is poor, so times may have to be brought down.
Gearing: The steepest part of the climb is the 1-in-10 section round the bends in Cragg Village. The remainder is a long steady climb up to the top of the moors. Geared bikes are recommended with gears in the range 60-120”. The last couple of miles can be quite fast with the wind in the right direction. The hill can be ridden comfortably on a TT machine.
(1) through Cragg Village as there are often a number of parked cars – on both sides of the road.
(2) when descending the hill back to the HQ – a fair speed can be attained and there are a number of large pot-holes, especially through Cragg Village
