Hills in Lincolnshire?

Left Whitby yesterday morning ( what a beautiful place - a bit like Dartmouth/Brixham/Looe/St.Peterport all roleld into one.)
Rode down to Robin Hoods Bay - had some interesting burning rubber smells from teh front brakes.
Ankle was still pinging so I walked up the long climb out of Fylingthorpe.
Continued on down to Scarborough and Bridlington ( lovely old town - thanks to the Bridlington Old Town association for a £5 donation).
Continued through Driffield - am,azing I could see the tops of the Humber Bridge and it was over 20 miles away!
Continued down to Beverely, over the bridge and through some nice B roads and lanes which took me to Scamblesby near Louth where I stayed in a lovely converted barn!
The last ten miles were a shock - I hit the wolds and suddenly found myself dragging 250 feet up hills and gradients! Never expereineced that in Lincolnshire before!
Just had a very monotonous ride down to Skegness with - you've guessed it A HEAD WIND!!!
Heading in the direction of Spalding - St.Ives - Saffrom Walden, don't know how far I'll get - did 122 miles yesterday!
