Stiperstones little sod

(Steve Turk of SAC reminded me of this one). Coming off Stiperstones down the main track to the pub, we are all thinking that it’s purely scorching downhill to the finish. But it isn’t. There’s about 20’ of climb just before the track bears right amongst the houses, and if you’re already eyeballs out, it’s just enough to wind you slightly and allow some clever git who has remembered its existence to overtake. Thanks Steve, I won’t (couldn’t!) do it again. Promise!­
