The Cotswolds' best climbs

In association with BMW Series 2 Gran Tourer

The Cotswolds are a hill-climber’s paradise, replete with rolling ascents that drop down into gorgeous little villages before rearing up with gradients approaching 30 per cent.

The climbs are generally less than 10 minutes in length, but thanks to the variety of hills, it’s up to you whether you spend that time spinning up a gentle rise or chewing your stem on a one-in-three slope.
