Route information
The route starts on the smooth tarmac of Ravenstor Road in the The Wirksworth Industrial Estate at 80 metres or 600 ft above sea level. This particular bit of tarmac is notable in Wirksworth for being absolutely flat. At the gun, or enthusiastic shout, it’s a flat out sprint towards the first corner just 50 metres away where a sharp right turn waves farewell to the flat. The next 400m is over the gravel, through the National Stone Centre and onto the High Peak Trail. Just 500m in and we’ve climbed the first 40 metres.
A brief return to the flat on the old track bed of the Cheshire and High Peak Railway gives a chance for the lungs and legs to settle down, then comes the first view of the Incline. [Insert Picture]
Officially, it’s a 77 metre climb over a distance of 636 meters, that’s 1 in 8½ or 12%. Reaching the top of the incline breaks the 1000 ft barrier.
