P455 - Portland Hill Climb

Meeting point for events:
Riders meet and sign on for races outside the public house in Victoria Square, Portland on the A354 immediately adjacent to the start. There is car parking in a public car park opposite, but there is free on-street parking in close proximity to the finish which is a better option. Please do not park on the course.

Course description:
START on A354 on the eastern side Victoria Square approximately 10 yds south of bus stop. Follow the A354 in the direction of Easton and proceed via Victory Road to Cadets Corner, where keeping to the A354 take the RIGHT turn into Castle Road and Osbourne Road to Fortuneswell. Continue forward on the A354 into New Road and Priory Road to the roundabout at Yeates Corner, outside the Portland Heights Hotel. Take the first exit LEFT off the roundabout towards New Ground and in approximately 50 yds CARE at sharp right-hand bend. Continue for approximately 100 yds to FINISH at War Memorial. 1.24miles

Course notes:
P455 is a mixed course as suited to road riders as hill climb specialists. There are some steep parts, some steady climbing parts, some flat and even a slight downhill.

The course was first used as an evening stage of the 1972 Milk Race (then, a two week amateur Tour of Britain) and was won by that year's overall winner Fedor Den Hertog of the Dutch national team.
