Hills – Trooper Lane, Halifax

Hill last night was Trooper Lane.

From Heath Rugby Club, Elland, along Stainland Road (N), up onto Huddersfield Road to foot of Jubilee Lane, then Up Jubilee Lane (regroup (1 mile and a bit)

Bear left down (at first) Backhold Lane, and along and up Oxford Lane. Over the top and along Whitegates Road and along and down Siddal New Road. At the bottom, and the entrance to the park/cemetery to your right, turn right up at first Swan Bank Lane, taking the first right which is the notorious Trooper Lane.
Climb to the junction with High Grove Lane.
Take a breath.
Above you, a steeper part of Trooper Lane climbs ever on.
[Run up until the first street lamp after you get onto the cobbles (about 200m), and gently back down to The junction at High Grove Lane. Repeat 4, 5 or 6 times according to taste and capacity. Take a full 2 minute break.] – Do this three times.
Return via the same route to Heath.
The return trip to the start of the climb is just under five miles. Each climb and descent is about 400m
