  • Want to feel like a hero from Le Tour? well cycle up this and I guarantee you'll feel slightly more like a cycling god. Lot's of people struggling up which also makes you feel good about yourself.
  • Long and steep but well worth a crack at the giant.
  • Beautiful place. Great walk to the top
  • Epic experience riding to the top of this iconic climb, breathtaking views once at the top. However you can park at the top if you don’t fancy the ride there is a cafe and small shop selling lots of merchandise, drinks etc they accept card payment also. There is also a pick and mix stalls and one selling meats.
  • Happy Mountain. Full of cyclists and all types of car/bike enthusiasts. Cold and windy mostly, at the top. Usually sweet stalls. (Cafes are below)
