That’s the chap! How disappointing though - it’s only 5390th in the world:(
What we need is an list of Scottish bike hill climbs - akin to the Munros. It must exist. I would expect the GQ road to be pretty high on THAT list!
Still - the big list is a good excuse for a holiday. JT must have ticked off a few this summer
Like this by STAG’s John McKendrick perhaps?https://www.waterstones.com/book/the-cyclists-guid...
There is a similar volume for Scottish Lowland Roads too.
(Not sure whether GQ features in them but seems likely!).
Maybe (next summer?) there is scope for an FVO road trip of a few days to ride a whole bunch of them?
I'd be up for a wee tour. It'd have to be May/June rather than summer holidays mind. I'm still hoping we might have a reasonable September...... as if...
Dodgy looking geezer on the front of that book. AND he's probably already been photoshopped to look less dodgy than IRL ;-)
FVO road trop sounds grand. Hills and hostelries.
It does indeed feature in John’s book. He states that “this climb comes in three parts - switchbacks, a straight and more switchbacks. Together they form one of the hardest 600 metres of road climbing in Scotland”
Is this a boys only trip?
Hmm sounds horrific, I might need a very different chainset if not an electric bike!!
The more the merrier I’m sure!
