Last year I went along to watch the Catford and Bec Hill climb cycling events and enjoyed them so much we just had to come back and scream, shout and take photos of these crazy men and women for another time…

From 10am till 12:30pm we shouted support at the Catford Hill Climb, now in its 117th year of running, and straight afterwards headed over to the Bec Hill Climb which was having its 57th running.

The road was dry, coffee and cake was drunk and we had a great time watching these nutters race up these hills.

Obviously I couldn’t go along with out taking some photos and a collection of 240 photos from the events can be viewed now at the gallery.

2012 Rollapaluza Urban Hill Climb

After having a great time supporting this event in 2011 it was only right to get myself over to Swain’s Lane again for the 2012 Urban Hill Climb event. ┬áThe weather was kinder than last year but the hill just as steep. I was on my mountain bike so got to ‘enjoy’ part of the climb as I rode up to set up position on a nice steep part of the hill!

At 6:30pm the first riders began and this endless stream of pained cyclists expressions, cheering crowds and ringing cowbells continued until for the next two and a half hours.  There were Bromptons, a few single speed bikes, a full time-trial setup, a unicycle (!!!) and a man in a gorilla mask all racing to the top of this incredibly steep sharp climb.
