Our Hill Climb competition, held on Sunday 17th September 2017 in Diggle, Saddleworth.  Everyone welcome!

Come along and cheer the competitors as they hurtle (if that's the right word!) up Huddersfield Road in Diggle. Better still, have a go yourself!

You can enter in the open class on your stripped down climbing machine, or as a tourist where your bike must have mudguards, pump, inner tube and basic tools (lights not necessary unless you are likely to be veeeery slow).

The course is just 1 mile, starting from the Carr Lane/Harrop Green Lane/Huddersfield Road junction (grid reference SE 004 081) and finishing just short of the junction with A62. Ride Headquarters is Wooly Knit Cafe, Warth Mill (SE 004 078) with plenty of parking arund the back.

Pick up your race numbers in good time before the 1pm start time. Entries on the line may be accepted, but will not be eligible for prizes.
