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!
Arriving at road.cc in 2017 via 220 Triathlon Magazine, Jack dipped his toe in most jobs on the site and over at eBikeTips before being named the new editor of road.cc in 2020, much to his surprise. His cycling life began during his students days, when he cobbled together a few hundred quid off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story) and bought his first road bike - a Trek 1.1 that was quickly relegated to winter steed, before it was sadly pinched a few years later. Creatively replacing it with a Trek 1.2, Jack mostly rides this bike around local cycle paths nowadays, but when he wants to get the racer out and be competitive his preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking - the latter being another long story.
