Last part of the steep section


Jubilee Tower is a long climb from the village of Quernmore. It is steep at the bottom, with a right hander and then left hander. Once over the first half a mile, the climb levels off and becomes a long drag to the top. There is a cattle grid to negotiate and sheep may be wandering onto the road.

It is used as a hill climb by Lancaster CC.



Sunday morning was very beautiful, if cold first thing, and thankfully there was hardly a drop of wind. I’ve done a few really tough races on this climb. When it’s windy and wet, it’s tough. But, today was perfect. Sunny, dry (though roads were very wet from recent downpours) and no discernible wind.
