The emphasis is firmly on having some fun and the event is part of the annual Caterham Festival, so there’s always a sizeable crowd cheering on the riders.
Waller Lane is a narrow road running from the centre of the Surrey town that pitches up at 20 per cent in places, and includes 210 feet of climbing over its 0.31-mile length. The all inclusive event attracts an unusual mix of Elite riders including National Hill Climb Champions, enthusiastic club amateurs, have-a-go Mum’s on shopping bikes all the way down to kids on balance bikes (supported by strong backed Mums and Dads).
With the following format:
• Riders set off at 1 minute intervals – Time Trial format
• Pusher on the line (to hold the bike)
• Entry on the day is available (without the early-bird discount)
• First rider sets off at 10am so please arrive for 9am-9:30am (latest) to allow time to get your number and register.
New for this year:
Live-video feed on a screen at the Start-Point, so see the riders cross the finish. Also available on Twitter-Periscope.
