Stories, information and comments from Birdlip Hill climbers
Story by Andee from Birmingham, United Kingdom, submitted on 14/03/2013
It''s a sustained pitch up to Birdlip with a little pinch before the turn for Slad. I''d argue though that Portway is meaner than the other two(Birdlip and Haresfield).For some reason the dead straight road seemed stiffer and more of a grind

Story by Tim Crouch from , United Kingdom, submitted on 29/08/2009
A good climb, but not the ""Ventoux"" of the Cotswolds. That honour goes to Haresfield with its brutal 25% finish.Witcombe kicks up after the flatish section half way and is sustained until the top. If coming from the Gloucester direction try the Portway ( Upton St. Leonards-Cranham) which at 20% is agood warm up.
