Huddersfield Star Wheelers are proud to announce a brand new and challenging Hill Climb competition in the Colne Valley on Wednesday 17th August.
Following the success of the first Tour de Yorkshire, Slaithwaite’s steep sided valley has been chosen for a new inter local club competition which starts just below the viaduct on Holme Lane and climbs up towards the Rose and Crown atop Cop Hill. The route is just short of a mile and climbs around 420 feet averaging out at 8% with some steep ramps thrown in for good measure.
Huddersfield Star Wheelers are inviting members from all clubs in the Huddersfield area and we’re looking for all riders to come along and just give it ago and mix pleasure with pain. For those whom the pain may be too much, we’ll also welcome anyone who can come along and support the riders or marshal and just make this a great event.
The event headquarters is at Gutsibits along side the canal at Slaithwaite. Click on the blue motorbike below for more information. Signing on will be from from 18:45 with start times of 19:30 and we’re taking £4 on the day which includes insurance.
So please come and give it go . . It may not be fun but will be painful and ENJOYABLE!!! We know we live in a hilly part of the country so let’s make the best of it.
