2017 Club Hill Climb Championships

Posted by Jason Dodd on 25 September 2017

On Sunday 24th September 2017, We joined one of our parent clubs' Hill Climb event for our 2017 Hill Climb Championships. We joined Somer Valley Cycling Club on their challenging 2 mile Hill Climb course up Burrington Combe. As the Hill Climb was on open roads, entry was restricted to riders of 12 years old and over.

10 of our members made the trip across to Burrington Combe to take part, with good competition in particular for the Under 14 Boys and Under 12 Girls categories.
