Back

The Burway and Long Mynd (OC-39)

Church Stretton, Shropshire, England

Loop - Hilly

Make sure you are warmed up before starting this very tough rolling loop up onto the Long Mynd, with spectacular views into Wales from the top, and of the Shropshire hills as you begin your final descent. "Straight up with a twist, Mr Bond". Fortunately the return leg back to Church Stretton isn't quite so steep. The Burway, Official Climbs #39, was the venue for the 1989 National Hill Climb Championship, won by Chris Boardman.
