This Way Up - Zig Zag Hill (OC-102) and Gold Hill (OC-101)

Shaftesbury, Dorset, England

Hilly - Loop - New

If you're a Fulgaz'er of more mature years, you may remember the Hovis "Boy on the Bike" TV advertisement from 1973. Here's your chance to ride up that impossibly steep hill. But before that, enjoy the meandering climb up Zig Zag Hill (OC-102) to Compton Abbas airfield before the fast swoop down to Melbury Abbas. Spin your legs along some gently rolling English lanes as you swing round to head north back to Shaftesbury. The cobbles of Gold Hill (OC-101) await you, briefly visible in the distance as you ride through 17Km. Fulgaz. As good today as it's always been.
