Hill Climb Time Trials
Bathurst Street Hill Climbs - Tuesday Evenings
On September 1st, at 6:30 PM, the first Hill Climb of the season will be held at the Bathurst Street Hill. There will be 3 Hill Climbs at this location. It is an excellent challenge for all riders, the quick and the not so quick. Last year the fastest times were around the 4:00 minute mark, the slowest probably about 8 minutes. The freshly painted yellow/red start line is south of the King Christian School driveway. The course heads south in a 2.5 metre wide paved shoulder for 2.0 kilometres to the crest. The finish is at the "Bike Route" sign denoted by a yellow line. The first kilometre is flat to warm up your legs, then the hill awaits you. The hill averages 8%, bhowever it is not a consistant gradient. As a bonus Tuesday is forecast to be a nice day.
To ride this event you must pre-register. To do so fill out the entry sheet, and the Covid waiver form if you have not done so, and pay me $5 online by Interac as per our Time Trials. The Hill Climb is a TT and the registration is found under Details in the Time Trial section on our web site.
Today we received permission to use the school's parking lot. The parking is at the King Christian School - South Parking Lot. The school is on the west side of Bathurst Street south of the Graham Side Road. The address is 19740 Bathurst Street, East Gwillimbury. Enter by the north driveway. Looking forwards to seeing you there!
Covid-19 Update - please read!
Great news, the OCA has selected The Newmarket Eagles as one of four clubs to test the reintroduction of TTs to our strange new world. To comply with Provincial laws, the race will be run in heats, with each heat restricted to eight riders at a time. Why eight you ask? Because the marshals count in the total numbers.
Registration must be done ahead of time, online and payment in advance. The Covid-19 waiver must also be signed and submitted
Registration is online and payments must be emailed in advance to Bob Spencer
