Hill #6 – Ridgeland Dve Aaaaannnd….thanks to my Adelaide Cyclists friends, I have got the Strava segment for this hill and subsequently have plotted a graph. Looking at the gradients, I have found myself wondering why? The first 200m at an average of 22.1% with two other sustained sections of 17% and 18.4% respectively! On the plus side, there are a couple of “recovery” sections in between. After heading up Norton Summit Rd again for several km at around 5% before turning onto this hill, there is bound to be some personal demons persecuted here! Instead of the top of Ridgeland Dve, the regroup will occur next at Norton Summit where a stretch and a toilet break have generously been provided…!
