Hi there.I live in the southampton area in hampshire and i'm looking for some major hills to conquer but so far i've only come across a few short sharp climbs probably no more than 8 or 10% and just a few hundred metres in length
Anyone know of any killer hills around here which could test me?
I did Ditchling Beacon last month which almost done me in but it was the biggest hill i've climbed so far but great fun to do.
I'd climb it all the time if it wasn't so far away
Any info would be gratefully received.Thanks
Rich

    I posted a reply on the other thread but whilst i'm at it I just remember a ride I did last month Winchester to Salisbury - that was a killer, good job I had good company the last couple of miles almost did me in.
