Your information is incorrect. Dunkery Beacon is in Somerset not Gloucestershire as this article says. Dunkery Beacon is the highest point in Somerset.

I used to be able to manage the climb with a 40/24 bottom gear. Recently I just managed it on a 34/28 bottom gear. I blame old age. Once on a wet day I followed four cyclist over the bottom cattle grid and they all fell off. I was forced to stop while they cleared the road and I then had to walk for half a mile before I could clip in again to get going. It''s steep and long, very long.

Fabulous fabulous climb.Straight away there is a 17% pitch, you grind over a cattle grid and it is steep again then eases as you pass a right hander and then the fun really hits as it basically is unrelenting throughout to the finish.Did it on a scorchingly hot day and man was there a cascade of perspiration
