Hill Climb Events 2016
We are looking forward to some more hill climbs this year and are running them over a period of 5 weeks from Thursday 18th August to Thursday 15th September. Some of the proceeds will be going to the ‘Go fo Jo’ Appeal. Jo Davies sadly died of cancer last year at the young age of 39. She was a highly active and positive member of the local community, if more could live like here the world would be a better place!
Attached is the upcoming events. For course information please see the Barrow Central Wheelers site. Clicking on the appropriate link will give you al you need to know about beasting yourself up a hill! Come and have a go, it is great fun….

Both the mens and womens course records went on the Woodland Hill Climb tonight.
Dave Huck decided gears were the best choice for this one which turned out to be a wise choice as he shaved 10 seconds off the previous record to come home first in 4:31. Sam from Wheelbase was second and Ollie Mashiter 3rd. His younger brother Ben who is 11…or possibly 12, did a great ride in just over 7 minutes!
Alex Fairer took 22 seconds off the 2012 ladies overall course record with her 7:45, and also got her name on the BCW record.
Congratulations Dave & Alex.
Big thank you to the timekeepers, marshals and anyone else who helped with the event in any way.

Dave Huck (Lakes RC) smashes Bigland Hill Climb course record
In ideal conditions, and the only rider choosing to ride fixed on the night, Dave Huck smashed the Bigland Hill Climb course record by 28 seconds to set a new mark of 05:22 for the 1.05 mile climb.
Next man up, and the only other rider to go sub 6 minutes was George Wharton (Kent Valley RC Junior) in an excellent 05:51.
It was a shame to see so few riding the event. Hopefully the other 3 in the series will be better attended.
