Autumn Hill Climbs 8 & 22.9.20130

The Autumn Hill Climb season is fast approaching, a quick reminder of what the Club is organising at the beginning of September this year.

We have just been given approval from First Hydro Company to use the private road at Marchlyn. Please add a new date to your diary, on Sunday 8th September we’ll be holding the second edition of the Fachwen Hill Climb. The signing on will be in The Caban upper car park in Brynrefail from 9.00am, and the event starts from the large lay by at Pen Llyn on the Fachwen road at 10.00am. Riders will follow the road up thro’ Fachwen towards Dinorwig and up to the Surge Pond at Marchlyn. Distance 5.5 miles, and approx. 1810 feet of ascent. Something for folks to think about, how about tea and cake after in The Caban. All invited, including those not racing. Please come along, give your support and enjoy the day.

Then on Sunday 22nd September we have the Two Stage Hill Climbs, first on the Drws y Coed climb starting at 10.00am. Distance 1.12 miles. Then at 11.30am the Groeslon to Y Fron climb. Distance 2.25 miles. The signing on point for both events will be in the car park at Inigo Jones Slate Works on the A487, Penygroes.

Riders from all local clubs are welcome to come and test their metal on these climbs. I look forward to seeing you there…… If you would like any further info. please contact John at or post a comment on Facebook. He will reply asap.
