Caper Hill (OC-149) and Rosedale Chimney (OC-55)

Whitby, Yorkshire, England

Hilly - New

This ride climbs two 10/10 hills in the North Yorkshire Moors. Caper Hill (Official UK climb #149, length 1.2km, height gain 174m) and the more famous Rosedale Chimney (Official climb #55, length 1.4km, height gain 179m). Like all the best hills, both are visible in the far distance as you approach them just to intimidate you. The ride starts in Egton, passes through the scenic Glaisdale and climbs Caper Hill up onto the moors before descending into the village of Rosedale. The chimney has a feared reputation among cyclists as one of the steepest roads in the UK, so provides a challenging finish.
