Old Beaconsfield Road climb
There are a number of great hidden Categorised residential climbs to the south of Emerald. Most riders wouldn’t have heard about them as they end in dead ends roads. With good tough climbs. Great scenery you can basque in the beauty and the tranquillity of this magnificent area which is relatively untouched by the cycling world.
The climb starts at the intersection of Jamina Way & Old Beaconsfield Road.
The climb starts on a 7% gradient for the first 200 metres before winding its way to your right. Be mindful of traffic as there are no lines painted onto the road.
The climb ramps over the next 300 metres and peaks at just over 11%.
Shortly after you pass Outlook Road you will receive some respite. From here the gradient averages 4 – 6% over the next couple hundred metres.
The next 500 metres to the intersection are very steap and peak at 15%. There are some lovely houses to either side of the road which can help to distract you from the pain in your legs.
Turn right at the intersection of Old Beaconsfield Road and Kilvington Drive.
The climb finishes just before the roundabout at Benson Drive.
Right near by is another great climb that you can combine with this one:
