Caper Hill

A real brute of a climb. This is unrelentingly steep with over 1km of 20% gradient. There is a gentle right-hand bend after 0.5km, but the climb is the classic Yorkshire design of putting a road straight up the hill and get it done. It’s a thing of beauty, though you may be cursing the designers after you’ve done it. After 1km, of 20%, the final few metres do ease off a little, but not much.
