Has anyone ever managed to cycle all the way up Keere Street?
I am old and it seems an impossible feat to me.

I walked up Keere Street about two years ago: and was rewarded by nearly being run down by a cyclist riding at speed on the pavement past the bookshop at the top.

Rode it on my mtb bike - if you check out mapmyride or strava you might find that someone already has a timed course for it. Little competition sounds fun.

When I trained for the South Downs Way I did it, but found a harder climb is bottom of Winterbourne Hollow to Mount Harry. This is just as steep but goes on for longer.
If you're a proper sadist take a left there and go up the road through Nevill towards Landport Bottom - at the top of that road after a long climb it goes suddenly even steeper and turns a corner which really tests you out. I found myself praying for a red traffic light by the prison so I could catch my breath.

Didn't Prince George bet he could race his coach and four down Keere Street?

A competition sounds great. It might even become a Lewes tradition - and let's face it, Lewes hasn't had a new tradition for....months.
However Keere Street alone may not be enough. How about:
The Lewes Town Wall challenge?
Starting at Friars Walk then Lansdown Place, Southover Road, Keere Street, Westgate Street, New Road, St John's Terrace/Hill, Brook Street, North Street, Wellington Street, Green Wall, and an Eastgate Street sprint finish.
A time trial for human power. Starting with bikes then roller blades, skateboards, runners, joggers and walkers.
Spring or summer would be the ideal time - that is if there's a Saturday or Sunday that could be booked for road closure for a few hours.
Organise that, please someone.

Well done to all those that have managed it, I'd love to give it a go but lack the legs and a decent bike. Sounds like hell to me!
