On Sunday the 17th October the East London Velo held their annual Hill Climb event at Mott Street, High Beech. This climb comes in at number 26 on Simon Warren’s Top 100 Greatest Cycling Climbs of Britain and averages 5% over a mile, but has two testing ramps of 12% to get the lactic acid flowing!

Two Crest riders entered the competition this year and were given great support from other club members’ along the route.

There were over 40 riders in the hill climb and Adam Hardy completed the climb in 2 minutes 18 seconds. Paul Elliott was just behind with a time of 2 minutes 37 seconds.

Well done to Adam and Paul for taking part and thanks to the East London Velo for organising the event.
