The Burway and Long Mynd

Church Stretton, Shropshire, UK

Loop - Hilly - New

A 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 was the venue for the 1989 National Hill Climb Championship, won by Chris Boardman.
