That pic doesn't do the entire view justice either. If you look at the first photo and the third photo, they're actually part of the same view.

here are some older photos of the same spot - imagine them connected in a panoramic photo. One day I'm going to haul a slr camera and tripod up there and take a proper shot...

It's better do go down with a road bike, so you can enjoy more. With track bikes it's "working" up hill and down hill :lol:

I went for a little ride in the park near by.

I need to find a better way of carrying a DSLR on the bike. Swinging between my knees doesn't cut it.

Indeed! You local? I love that climb, well except for the last bit to the Cat & Fiddle...


Lyme Park, shortly before my stem cap bolts came loose and I discovered that I didn't have an allen key :doh:

Is that the top of the road that goes up the front of the Saleve? It's a pig for sure that climb.
