I am pleased to announce this year's hill climb co-hosted once again with our Brixton Cycles friends.
This event has become legendary within our club. On a Sunday morning as we dip into autumn, a group of intrepid rouleurs set off from Crystal Palace, and make their way through the misty morning lanes of Kent to seek out the colossus.
From its humble beginnings on the precipitous climb of Fackenden Lane towering over the Stone Age settlement of Shoreham, the event has grown in size and stature every year, and in recent years has graduated to the terrifying cliff of Exedown that has been rising ever higher for the last 65 million years since the seas left south-east England.
The event is free, and for that price we throw in a bacon sandwich. There are prizes for winning. There are even prizes for doing really badly (which are surprisingly hotly contested). And we drink beer at Canopy afterwards.
Last year was incredible. This year expect something even more spectacular.
