episode 176: Service Course | Running up that hill

It's hill-climb season once again in the UK. In this episode Tom Whalley and Lizzy Banks discuss what could be the UK's steepest climb. Could it even be the steepest climb in the world? Simon Warren, author of 100 Greatest Cycling Climbs, and Ben Lowe, the creator of Veloviewer, talk us through their attempts to climb and measure the gradiant of Bamford Clough. Lizzy also speaks to Rebecca Richardson, one of the UK's top hill-climbers, about the balancing act of life and how she still manages to get to the top. Lizzy and Rebecca take on Winnats Pass where the national hill climb championships will take place on October 31.
