I love Swains Lane. I mean really… I don’t… but it makes for some great lungbusting hill repeats before settling into a shift at Getty (its only a couple of miles away). Id thoroughly recommend it for any town dwelling cyclists to head up on their lunch break and pop out a couple of climbs. Head right up and the you can descend down Highgate Hill and repeat the fun ad nauseam. Highgate village offers you an extensive selection of café’s for a post-hillclimb machiato.
