Wait, did you say favourite? Then none. No climbing is my favourite.

By the end of the year, if all goes to plan, I should be living just off the descent ('descent' being after you've ascended the killer mile and turned left) - I intend to OWN this hill!

Current favourite is the little one-way road up from the Goyt valley towards the Cat and Fiddle, all green with the stream alongside. No pics though.

I remember running the killer mile race a few times, it was a nightmare. Never been up it on two wheels but did the hill start on my driving test just before the summit, all you could see was sky through the wind shield.

Im back up visiting soon and might borrow a bike to give it a stab, whats the gradient at the top 25-30% or maybe more.

My father lives near the Mur de Bretagne (stage 4 finish of the TdF 2011) and I go and suffer up it every time I visit. Not my photo. Is my hill.

Wrynose Pass - even just looking at it makes my legs hurt.
