The Push Hog Strikes Back – The East Yorkshire Area Hill Climb Chart

So who said the East of Yorkshire was flat!

I’ve posted a similar hill chart before, but it was a scanned image of quite poor quality, so I thought I neaten it up a bit and put the hills in difficulty order. The information within the chart was put together by Roger England of Hull & East Riding CTC.

*Many thanks to whomever took the time to plot the locations and climb information on the above maps, all I know that it wasn’t me, so I make the information available in good faith and hope that anybody using it finds it as useful as I do.

    Do you know if these have been put on a map? It would be great to visualise where they all are.

    • Hello Craig, many thanks for your question, in answer, I’m not aware of any maps showing the climb locations, but I am working on it myself by experimenting with 50k & 250k OS Maps. Depending on how that looks on the screen, at the very least I will link the climbs to google maps so it give the reader an idea of where the hills are located, so watch this space!

      *EDIT* After a good deal of Google based digging it turns out that a kind person has already plotted the hills on both Google Earth and Google Maps, so I’ve put the links in the blog post – Enjoy!
