Hill climb courses / events 2015

A list of  hill climb events for 2015 from CTT.

I usually spend a lot of time trying to work out what kind of hill all the course codes are so this is a page with some of the info I have, but bear in mind it is incomplete, and possibly inaccurate.

  • Sometimes it is hard to find info on the course. If you have more info, or link to event website, drop us a line or leave a comment.
  • To enter hill climb click on name of event. Note some events, have separate event for J/W. Best to check at CTT site.
  • The most helpful thing to know is roughly how long a hill climb will take. Time of 1st ride is either CR or estimate CR for men. Some course records are from memory. But, it will provide a rough guide to kind of hill

    Eagle RC Hill Climb 25th Oct 2015 – Lippitts Hill High Beech Essex. Closest postcode is the Owl Pub: IG10 4AL

    Our club hill climb isn’t as much of a classic as others – we’ve only been running it since 1933.

    Lippitts Hill is quite steep but not too long – below 2 mins is a good ride. Ideal for fixed wheel and there’s a pub at the top (The Owl) to rehydrate/recover in.

    Starts at 1100hrs and all welcome

    Look forward to seeing you there

      Thanks Glenn.

    A really useful list. Thanks Tejvan.

    This is great, thanks very much Tejvan!

    Hi Tejvan

    OHC/11 – Hardwick course record is 1m 31s set last year by Danny Featherstone. Bit short for you but I’d guess it’s one of a only a few run at night. Last year we had an issue with the lighting, so used car headlights but this year we have things in place. The feedback from everyone was really good, we had a great atmosphere. It’s a bit like a mini-monsal, but in the dark!

      sounds fun

    OHC/12 – Carr Lane – Record set last year by Adam Kenway 3m 18s.

    Full results here: http://www.velouk.net/2014/10/13/report-bolsover-district-hill-climb/

    AHC/10 – South Pennine (on the morning of our own climb at Carr Lane, we do offer a prize for combined time).

    Won last year by Adam Kenway – 1m 19s .18

    Halifax Imperial Wheelers Hill Climb 26/09/2015. Luddenden Village near Halifax.
    Stocks Lane HC. 900 yards average grade 10%
    Any further info needed.

    4th October is a double header with the same base.
    Cleveland Wheelers – Clay Bank in the morning.
    Stockton Wheelers – Carlton Bank in the afternoon.
    Times of Clay and Carlton to be added together for those doing both.

    You and the CTT have the Stockton one down as Tan Hill which isn’t until 11th October.

    Page 14 https://clevelandwheelers.files.wordpress.com/2015/02/teesside-district-handbook-2015.pdf

    Clay should be listed as THC4.

    Any idea how to get it corrected on CTT?

    This is great! Thanks for putting it together.
    There are a few on the British Cycling site too like this one on the rather painful Sir William Hill near Sheffield: https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/events/details/131874/Sir-William-Hill-Climb

    East Lancs RC double header is on Huddersfield Rd in Newhey ([email protected]% according to Strava) and Buckstones Rd in Shaw ([email protected]%).

    • Alan August 28, 2015 at 3:45 pm #

      The East Lancs event is also on 13th September rather than the 19th.
