I'm getting exhausted just watching it! I think they got the wrong idea, you're meant to film yourself woshing down hills, not dying going up them. :eek:

Fair does though, they didn't wimp out and starting walking.

It's interesting to note that you get the same sort of farkwits when cycling up a 1 in 5 in the middle the Peak District, that you get cycling through the middle of London.

Whoa, that's some serious climbing there - good on 'em, though seemed to be too many cars around for my liking!

If Winnats is too busy (most summer weekends), then taking the old Mam Tor road can be a very pleasant alternative. It's not only traffic free, but was built as a less steep variation to Winnats Pass for the stage coaches on the toll road.

You will have hop off on a road bike a couple of times, but apart from that, it's all good tarmac.

The circuit up Mam Tor and Down Winnats is great.

They went up it better than me. Good video and good effort. There was more traffic than when I did it in March. It's a good road to Edale from the top of there too. ;)
