Introduction

A hilly road ride over the hills to Denby Dale and finally up to Emley Moor mast. Nice riding if you don't mind hills

Conditions

Mostly smaller roads, with the odd but of main roads

Narrative

A punishing ride on a fixed gear road bike as I did it. Andy was faster on the flat and downhill on a mtb with road tyres, but I was faster up the hills, as a fixed gear bike demands you have to charge up every hill to keep the revs high as you simply can't change down.
