The hills to the east of Avenel provide magnificent views over the plains to the west and of the granite-strewn hills themselves. This time of year the grass is green and the weather cool – ideal for an assault on the Tarcombe Rd.hill. While this hill is a somewhat challenging climb in spots, it averages only 3% over the 10km climb. The rewards are manifold – beautiful views of the surrounding countryside, the lovely descent down Upton Rd. and the self-satisfaction of conquering another hill.
