Haven't kept count... I think around 30-40 of them.

The hardest I've done: Hardknott, Wrynose, Bwlch Y Groes, Garsdale Head, Winnats pass, Bushcombe Lane (Book 2)

The most beautiful: Bealach-Na-Ba, Llanberis pass, The Burway, Honister pass, Gospel Pass (book 2).

My local: Dovers Hill, Edge hill (book 2).

Amazing, I’ve only done one of those you mention - Edge Hill. Have you considered downloading the App at all? It keeps count for you

37 according to the app.

I went through a spell of getting loads, sticking the bike in the boot on work/leisure trips and just doing straight-up, straight down.

Can't really be ar$ed any more.

The thing is I've done half of them before I was on Strava... I don't think I will ever go up to the Highlands to do Bealach-Na-Ba again... the journey is simply too long... it takes less to fly to Australia.

This is a fun challenge to do, if you are in the area... Bwlch-Y-Groes 3 ways:

Veloviewer also keeps track of them if you've used Strava. I have a grand total of, er, 3!
