Birmingham Baker’s Dozen – potential climbs

We’re currently investigating a potential route for the Birmingham Baker’s Dozen. This route is looking more and more like the final route so I went ahead and created the map and stats for all the climbs. We explored this route on Sunday, and I made youtube videos of all the climbs. Lots of random conservations on the climb so you may want to listen with volume down if that is annoying. Also, I found and linked to the strava segments that most closely match each of the climbs and only had to make two new segments to fit the race route.
