why do this ride
Why would you even consider cycling up a road with the name Hardknott Pass? Because its Norwegian for hard steep rock and what do the Norwegians know about cycling uphill anyway? Conquer the pass from the east, where you have to battle corners of 25 percent. With slopes of 30 percent there is only one way to attack this pass: à bloc!
