Whitelow Lane and Creaking Cranks

I’ve been spending a lot of time adjusting stuff on my rear wheel recently. First the brakes were juddering then there’s the old trick of spending half a day to re-align them and now there’s a creak when I work it uphill. But I’ve had the wheel off again (after creaking all the way up Whitelow Lane) and it seems quiet now so here’s hoping…


Whitelow Lane


My new favourite climb. It’s not that long and it leads to more climbs beyond but its just a really nice quiet road looking up to the Peak District and looking back over Sheffield.
