The Road Race Leagues are over, but there is one last chance for racing members to flex their muscles in the IVCA Hill Climb which takes place next Sunday, 2nd October, on Cromwellstown Hill, outside Rathcoole. The course is 2.25 Km long with an average gradient of 5.5% (maximum of 17%).
Parking and sign-on will be at the nearby Beech Park Golf Club, Rathcoole. You can find the location by clicking here. Sign-on is from 10.15 am, with the first rider off at 11 am. Refreshments and prize-giving afterwards in the Golf Club.
Prizes will be awarded to the three fastest riders and to the three best improvers on handicap (i.e. their previous best time on the hill). Anyone who has not ridden the Hill Climb previously on Cromwellstown Hill will ride off a handicap time of 5:38, the hill record set by Paul Dolan in 2019.
