Bathurst Street Hill Climbs
This 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 meter wide paved shoulder for 2.0 kilometers to the crest. The finish is at the "Bike Route" sign denoted by a yellow line. The first kilometer is flat to warm up your legs, then the hill awaits you. The hill averages 8%, however it is not a consistent 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 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.
We have permission from the King Christian School to use their south parking lot on Wednesday nights.
The school is on the west side of Bathurst Street south of the Graham Side Road. The address is 19740 Bathurst Street, East Gwillimbury
I have to re-fresh the paint on the course. We were asked to reinstate the pylons when we are leaving the parking lot. For those that want to get in some kilometers, it is easy to ride to the school from Newmarket on bike lanes. For example on Main Street North, London Road and Arrowsmith there are bike lanes that lead to Bathurst Street. You can also ride around the Marsh prior to and after the Hill Climb.
