July offers a slightly less stern test for competitors’ legs, as we move a little closer to home for a relatively high speed run out of Twyford.  The segment runs for just over a mile and a half but only climbs just over 100 feet over that distance, meaning the gradient never rises above 4%.

You begin your effort, as the segment starts just as you pass the last house at the edge of Twyford village crossroads, travelling Eastbound along Hazeley Road.

Climb profile for July 2022 SoTM

From here the road meanders fairly flat up to the point you pass the 60mph speed limit road signs on both sides of the road. From here there is an imperceptible at first, gentle and minor increase in gradient, first passing the old Twyford Waterworks on your right and then passing through open fields on both sides of the road.

The small red post box on your right, next to a distinct left turn in the road sees the first small noticeable ramp in gradient as you then pass some farm buildings on your left.

You are now at the final run-in to the segment end, taking another left turn and climbing the final ramp to the finish line which is atop the crest of the hill before the descent to the junction with Morestread Road.

As always, please follow the rules of the road, along with any social distancing requirements that may be in place at the time.  The link to the segment is here:
