Ride Stories

Hornick Hill & The Claylands (Cornwall)

If you’ve ever ridden in Cornwall, you’ll know that it’s pretty lumpy and with the UK Hill climb season kicking off I thought that’s quite a good thing. This was a fun little route out of Truro, along some quiet back lanes with 3-5min short sharp climbs to get the lungs burning and the legs aching. Hornick Hill being the ‘hero’ climb of the route, at just 111m elevation gain it’s not massive but it’s steep, averaging approximately 13% ramping up to 20% in places and the road surfaces are rough. The top of the climb greets you with open views across the industrial clay pit landscape and Cornwall’s rugged rolling hills, before descending through the old mining villages and onto the return leg of the local 10mi Time Trial route back into Truro. Alternatively, turn right at the end of the flat section after Hornick Hill and go further into the Claylands. Enjoy!
