The Waller Pain hill-climb in Caterham, Surrey, returns this Sunday (June 19) for its sixth edition.
One of the few hill-climbs run the summer months, the race attracts a mix of elite athletes, club riders and have-a-go-heroes.
The emphasis is firmly on fun, with categories for seniors, veterans, novices, under-16s, under-12s and even a fancy dress category.
Waller Lane in Caterham hosts the climb, with the gradient touching 20 per cent in places over its 0.3-mile length.
The event is run by Caterham Round Table as part of the Caterham Festival, with any proceeds going to local charities.
The first rider sets off at 10am, with entries made on the day from 9am. For more information visit the Caterham Round Table website.
Last year's event was won by Matthew Burton (Velo Club Rutland) and Helen McKay (Les Filles RT).

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
