Following the massive success of our Hill Course in February we are now able to offer members another course.
Book early because the last course filled up in a matter of hours.
Ever been left behind on a climb? Ever struggled on a hilly sportive?
Some people seem to glide up hills, some people "like" hills. What's that about?
Is lack of hill climbing ability denting your enthusiasm, limiting who you can ride with and what you can achieve?
Bike with Claire has once again teamed up with Rideventures to offer club members a chance to improve their hill climbing ability.
There's a specific technique to climbing hills, and once you learn it you too can ascend with confidence (and be the envy of your cycling buddies).
