Stories, information and comments from MORTIMER ROAD STRINES climbers
Story by Sean Murphy from Sheffield, United Kingdom, submitted on 20/07/2013
This is a long energy sapping climb. I have done it before but had another go at it yesterday in scorching heat. I was in and out of the saddle and was a real wet gooey sticky mess at the top lathered in sweat salt and sun cream.



It seems there are five sections to this climb, although it is fairly consistent and relentless. The steep start up Church Street is a lung buster, which slightly eases to give a bit of early respite.



As the road turns it rises again steeply passing a bus stop. At this point the road eases a bit, narrows, seemingly turning into a lane and the tar surface becomes rutted and bumpy. (Here I nearly bumped into the wall trying to wipe sweat pouring down my nose on my shoulder.) Trundling up towards the Church it kicks up again around the corner - that was hard!



The road then relents slightly before wickedly kicking up again. This point was a real test in the heat.



Finally there is a long drawn out drag up Burnt Hill Lane and Kirk Edge Road which isn''t anywhere near as steep as the rest of the climb, but as your legs are now spent it is tougher than it should be.



The descent into Bradfield is tough. I recommend Bradfield Post Office for refreshments, cold drinks cups of tea and lots of Flapjack.
