Sir William Hill Climb

On Friday 9th September GEP is putting on a cycle time trial up the Sir William Hill, it’s a beast! 1.77km (that’s 1.1miles) and climbs a whopping 200m (650feet) in that distance.  That’s an average gradient of 11%.

Last year we saw some incredible performances from club cyclists and total newcomers alike. Pit yourself against the best, and then kick back with the delights of the Friday evening festival.

Enter here:

Great news is the race is being sponsored by our most local cycle shop shop High Peak Cycles (Calver and Glossop). Check out their fab gear:

They have generously provided race prizes of £50, £20 and £10 vouchers for 1st, 2nd and 3rd women and men.

And they have funded the production of our fab event T-shirts (designed by one of our dads). There will be children’s sizes available too! Here is a sneak preview of the fab event T-shirts, on sale for £10.


You can meet High Peak Cycles at their stall at the event festival where they will be showcasing their kids bikes and other goodies.

Thank you High Peak Cycles!
