You may have heard of the Electric Brae in Ayrshire, a stretch of road where the shape of the land makes it appear as if you're coasting uphill. I seem to have found another one; Heighington Lane in Newton Aycliffe. Out for a ride this morning and came to this stretch which looked dead flat or even slightly downhill. Struggled to make double figure mph along it and got to the end severly out of breath. Now, I'm not that fit to begin with but this felt particularly disheartening. I've just done some googling and it turns out that this 1.4km stretch has a 40m rise along it in this direction! I'll try it the other way next time but I suspect it will turn out to be a double ramped hill!
