Hurstbourne Hill via Over the bridge by

Oddly, this hill doesn't seem to get much credence in the local cycling fraternity. Conholt Hill nearby is a Category 4 National Hill climb but is less steep and shorter. This one doesn't get a mention. I don't know why this is so because it is a brute of a climb, albeit on a busy main road. It starts steep then eases, then steepens again, then eases and then has a sharp final steep bit before cresting on the top of the ridge line of the chalk escarpment that runs east west in this area.
