In less time than it takes to boil an egg you can you challenge yourself on the annual 45 Road Club Hill Climb. All welcome.
The current course record is 1 minute 43 seconds set by Alan West in 2010. Pro Raleigh Team rider Liam Stones tried to beat this in 2012 and fell short by 1 second! Last years event was wonn by Paul Hardy, in 2:04 I believe, so could you do better?
Try it this Sunday the 19th Sept, 9.30 am at Haselbech-Cottlesbrook Hill. I'm sure Steve Peel will be trying for another win. Seconds out............
