This was my last climb on the 12th May. I had intended to follow it with the climb up to Haytor Vale but after a few twinges from my knee I decided to be sensible and be happy with ticking another three off the list.

Widecombe is a pretty place, the climb up out of it less so. The view from up top is great but on the climb I struggled to look at anything other that the 6 feet of tarmac in front of me.

Widecombe is a very busy place, the roads around it are narrow and there is a regular bus service which chugs up and down the hill every so often. I even managed to get held up leaving the village because of said bus. Check out the dog in the back of the Fiat, he doesn't seem to impressed at the sight of a sweaty cyclist.
