Hill no 24 - 34 Rowsley Bar, Derbyshire

Rowsley Bar started from a little side road off of the village and went into nice countryside almost straight away.

It didn't take long for the road to ramp up quite a lot and it was pretty hard work from the get go, but it was a pretty peaceful, nice climb

Simon mentions in his book that there is a thin sliver of repaired road all the way up the climb and I dilligently followed his instructions to follow the repaired tarmac all the way up.

As he also says, the road ramps up around a couple of bends - I quite like it when the road does that - it gives you a target to go round, but it was hard work and pretty challenging -

A nice little climb - but another of those that I wasn't 100% of where it finished, so I kept on for a bit - certainly for a lot longer than the 6 minutes that Simon suggests it should take!
