IBC Hill Climb Competition

The Hill Climbing season is upon us again, so, as last year, we are heading back to Semer and Watson’s Hill for the 2017 event, followed by the Half Wheel competition just round the corner.

On Saturday October 7th the SSR (Saturday Social Rides) will head over to Semer, so that those who want to have a go can and others can offer support. Anyone arriving early can get a coffee from Hollow Tree Farm nearby.

Registering will be done on the day at the bottom of the hill between 9:45 and 10am when the first rider will start.
As for the Half Wheel this is always a fun chance of a trophy and everyone is in with a chance.

Please note the Sudbury Open is the following weekend (Sunday 15th) so it’s a great chance to test those legs.
