TODAY: Up The Buttress!

Here’s a cycling event with a difference: ‘Up The Buttress…’. The buttress in question is a steep, cobbled 365 metre lane from Hebden Bridge in the direction of Heptonstall in the Calder Valley of Yorkshire. In the words of the organisers:

“£10 to attempt the Buttress, then your race number becomes a raffle ticket (so remember to hand it back in). The fastest Male, Female, Boy (U14), Girl (U14) win HOPE vouchers and a trophy. EVERYONE who manages to get to the top with their bike gets entered into the raffle to win a brand new Orange Clockwork supplied by Orange and Blazing Saddles. Plus many many more prizes

In true UCI/ASO style we will be having a rule change this year. The fastest time will only be for those that don’t dismount. E-bikes are allowed…… but you must wear the supplied 25kg bag of postmix in a rucksack, or carry the bike on your shoulders.”
