6. Cheddar Gorge | Babble Ride Across Britain
A truly iconic natural gem nestled in Somerset’s Mendip Hills, the limestone Cheddar Gorge is widely regarded as one of the best and most scenic cycling climbs in the UK. After riding out of the village of Cheddar, the road heads up, snaking up steeply around some hairpins. The start of the climb is challenging, but the remaining few kilometres are at a much gentler gradient, allowing you the opportunity to climb at your own pace and admire the views from the gorge and then ride further onto to the top of the moor.
