Report:
A convivial chat between a small group of us as we looked forward to the start of the White Horse Cycle Challenge this weekend. We discussed routes and the possibility of putting on a few rides once lockdown is lifted (lookout for further details). Jan inspired us with her plan to cycle the hill every day over the 16-days. Wow.
One interesting question was how many riders would it take to equal the height of Mt Everest? After various attempts to measure the height of the climb from the B4507 to the top of Dragon Hill Road, I came up with 296ft of ascent (see photo attached). So 98 riders would achieve the goal of 29035 ft . Go for it Wantage!!
A note of caution: the final cattle grid just before the T-junction with the road up from Woolstone (which passes the main NT car park) has a broken bar on the left hand side as you descend - so recommend keeping right. See also the photos attached.
Good luck to everyone undertaking the challenge. Take care, stay safe and enjoy it!
