Just saw this and thought the hill climb squadra might be interested?… I note that the male and male vet categories are currently sold out, but several riders have managed to enter more than once (including Hippy), so places might become available. It’ll certainly be an event to go and watch, even if you can’t get a ride.
Full details here.
On Thursday 22nd after the pros in the Tour de France have battled their way up the Col du Tourmalet, Londoners (and visitors!) will be able to grab their own piece of glory on the slopes of Highgate’s renowned Swains Lane which features in Hill Climb expert Simon Warren’s new book “100 Greatest Cycling Climbs”
Entry is free so you’ll need to register quickly in order to take part.
