This main road climb the A635 starts at the crossroads in the centre of New Mill and is probably the busiest of the few main roads I have chosen. Outside rush hours it isn’t too bad and it is a wide road so you shouldn’t get too much hassle from drivers! This climb has a fairly steady and consistent gradient ranging for the most part around the 5%-6% but once past the Crossroads public house at just over one mile the gradient eases to around 3%. The climb finishes at the next crossroads (Marsh Lane) around three hundred yards past the pub.
