The Seven Cols

The Seven Cols is a route devised by Banbury Star member Keri Williams which heads out of town and tackles seven of the toughest climbs ascending the escarpment that lies to the northwest of Banbury.

It’s a good test of energy management and pacing for any rider that attempts it, irrespective of ability, and has a Strava segment of its own:

What goes up must come down so please take care on the descents, some of which are quite fast and “enjoy” slippery road surfaces, especially when wet.
