In his introductory chapters, Warren describes the search for a hill climb in Wales that would stand alongside his two giants of England and Scotland: respectively, Great Dun Fell and Bealach na Bà. His choice, and you may disagree, is The Stwlan Dam at Blaenau Ffestiniog. Though he awards it only 8/10, he says, 'If this road were situated just north of Dorking, it would need a permanent police present to control the number of riders heading up it...'

Hey Paul

I'm new to the club but interested in this club run. Was just wondering roughly what sort of pace this would be?

Hi Andrew i would expect it to be around 16-17mph average more A run pace than B run.
