Blazing Saddles Brompton Hill Climb

Posted on May 13, 2019 at 10:23 AM by carl.fisher@calderdale.gov.uk

The Blazing Saddles Brompton Hill Climb is back for its 4th year!

You don’t need to own a Brompton - just a sense of humour and a love for a bit of a fun challenge!

Slots available throughout the day - ring or email to book yours.

Test out the bike’s reputation on the Cragg Road Hill Climb, the longest continuous hill climb in England.

Book a ride and challenge yourself in the art of bike folding and uphill pedalling!




Every rider gets their name on the leaderboard

£5 per entry which includes bike hire of a Brompton if needed. All monies go jointly to Calder Valley Search and Rescue, (and let’s hope no-one needs them on the day…) and to the Chevin Socialites - towards keeping the kettle boiling for a charity which provides free tea and coffee for blood cancer patients at St James’ hospital in Leeds.

If you’ve taken part before this is your chance to beat your time, or just bully some other people to have a go - it’s in a very good cause!

RING 01422844435 to book your place or email us at info@blazingsaddles.co.uk
