The Bradford-on-Avon Hill Climb is back for 2019 on Sunday 14th July, and as headline sponsors we'd love to see as many road.cc fans as possible turn up to take on the gradient!
Taking place on Market Street and Masons Lane in the picturesque Wiltshire town, the challenging climb starts at the Swan pub and continues around the bend up to the Castle pub, where you will be greeted with a rapturous round of applause and a pint of Hill Climb ale for your efforts! In 2018 there was a record number of entries and a new course record time of 53.44 was set... by none other than Andrew Feather, who went on to become the 2018 National Hill Climb Champion.
There will be individual category prizes, and also by assigning your cycling club you will be automatically entered into the cycling club prize, with the team that has the best average finishing time (with at least one male and one female in it) winning.
There are only 200 tickets available, with full Hill Climb entries at £7.50 each and the under 14's Mini Hill Climb entries costing £3.50. Entries are filling up fast so click here to enter before it's too late, and we'll see you there in July!
After cobbling together a few hundred quid during his student days off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story), Jack bought his first road bike at the age of 20 and has been hooked ever since. He was Staff Writer at 220 Triathlon magazine for two years before joining road.cc in 2017, and reports on all things tech as well as editing the road.cc live blog. He is also the news editor of our electric-powered sister site eBikeTips. Jack's preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking (the latter being another long story), and on Sunday afternoons he can often be found on an M5 service station indulging in his favourite post-race meal of 20 chicken nuggets, a sausage roll, caramel shortbread and a large strawberry milkshake.
