I have a question please oh knowledgeable peeps.
Newlands hill, versus Rutland ripple, comparable or is one worse than the other?
Newlands nearly killed me yesterday and I'm still cramping from it!
Hiya! Having done both I would say that they are probably comparable however, iirc you get a downhill run into the Ripple(s) so can pick up some momentum to get you started.
Not sure where you're based but if there's nothing comparable near you, find something easier and practice climbing it in a harder gear. And as Steady said, there are no hills which can't be walked!
