My 182 has been down there too!
Its great... it starts off like a time trial road and gets really steep all of a sudden!

1 in 3 steepness in places! Phew...

r the roads gd for driving there (fast)?? looks great
At the start yes, but have to be repectful to residents and noise was reverbing off the walls and roads are really bendy and narrow. Good adrenaline rush though. Near the middle and end the road is really rough and steep... roman roads!

Would defo recommend it... Was really good fun... Alittle hairy in places though, especially when you have oncoming traffic and you have to let them pass! :)

bloody southerners :rasp:

the main problem on Wrynose/Hardknott is ramblers... 1000's of sq miles of mountains and paths to walk on but most of them insist on wandering down the middle of the road and then giving disapproving looks as you pass them at 12mph.

I've seen 5 people in a 1 liter Micra going up there no problem.
I've cycled up it!

The usual tourist trick is to try and take the hairpins in too high a gear and then they roll backwards when they try and change down mid-corner :rolleyes: Sit at the hairpin left/hairpin right on the west side, hours of entertainment guaranteed.

Blimy I get tired sitting in a car that long.
Must be one heck of a cycle.
