Introduction

A short but sharp hilly ride around the Horbury area in West Yorkshire.

Conditions

Minor roads, some street lit, some not

Narrative

I took my fixed gear bike out for a night ride. The climbs were utterly horrible on a fixed gear bike, but I just about panted and slogged my way up them all, and the dark lanes made for some challenging riding. If you ride this int he dark best to bring some decent lights.

The last third of the route is mostly downhill. Which is not so fun on a fixed gear bike either, as you can't freewheel!
