i will be taking part in my first hill climb time trial this coming sunday here in bath. to celebrate the end of the season my local cycling club vc walcot have organised the event with the course running uphill for 900 metres and with a rise of 81 metres. i think i am correct in saying the course record was previously set by robert gough with a time of 2:43.1. robert who is also the defending champion will again be riding this sunday. i will be doing a reconnaissance of the course this evening to get an idea of what kind of time i can expect. i will let you know how i get on.
for anyone who is in the area this sunday and wants to watch the suffer fest unfold details of the hill climb including map of the course can be seen above. it should be a good laugh.
