York's downhill uphill

This cycle track in York is a 'gravity hill' - an optical illusion that makes a downhill look like an uphill. It appears that the cyclist in the picture is going uphill. In fact, she can freewheel all the way to the end: it's downhill to the point where it rejoins the road at the top left. The road is Water End, in the west of York, where it turns left to run north-east off Boroughbridge Road.
