So I learn that there really is a cycle race up The Buttress in Hebden Bridge. It’s this Saturday 12th September! What I shame I have to go back to Oxford (or is it relief?)
Of all the hill climbs I know about this really is the craziest.

I didn’t realise you could start from top of a bridge and get a bit of a running start! Mind you I wouldn’t particularly want to hit those cobbles at too much speed.
Next year, I’ll have to borrow a mountain bike or big fat rear tyre or granny chainring.
What about a two stage hill climb – Up the Buttress in the morning, Mytholm Steeps in the afternoon!

If you manage to bring a mountain bike back up here with you make sure you do the climb through Horsehold all the way up to Stoodley Pike or for a full days challenge the 47 mile Mary Townley loop.
The Buttress in the wet is what nightmares are made of.
