The event, One Hell of a Hill Climb, was held to raise money for an adapted bike for Daren Smith (a local cyclist who is in rehab from a stroke). There was a great turnout of riders and volunteers and there was lots of healthy competition and plentiful amounts of last minute doubts!
The event was thoroughly enjoyable due to the friendly atmosphere and the chance to compete against experienced cyclists. Although most of us, including me, set off with high hopes of being fast, these quickly changed to hopes of actually making it to the top of the hill!
Overall, it was a great, well organised event for an inspiring cause and I’m really pleased I took part. I also hope that the fundraising for Daren’s adapted bike is a success.
