If you haven’t checked out the BikeRadar Diaries on YouTube, then you really should. We’d recommend that you start with the team’s Hill Climb Diaries. Building up to the National Championships the Hill Climb Diaries offer a fascinating insight into this very British end-of-- season tradition. And if you like those, you’ll able to catch up with more of their biking adventures every fortnight. For example, you can find out what happens when, for some reason, they head for the one of the steepest hills in the south west, the fearsome Prospect Place near Bath. This hits a supposed 37% but, being gluttons for punishment, they decided to try conquering the short and brutal climb on fixed geared bikes. Cue gurning, grunting and heavy breathing.
