Waller Pain summer hill-climb entries open
The Waller Pain summer hill-climb returns to Caterham, Surrey, for a third year on June 10.
Based on the steep, Waller Lane course running from the centre of the town riders will tackle 210 feet of climbing in just 0.31 miles.
The event is open to experienced and novice riders, men and women, with categories for under-16 riders. The emphasis is on fun rather than a serious lung-bursting race and the event is part of the annual Caterham festival, so there's always a sizeable crowd cheering on the riders.
Last year, Matthew Pilkington of Progressive Cycle Coaching Development set a new event record of one minute and 14 seconds, slicing a chunk off Hal Bransby's previous mark of 1-26 set in 2010.
Entry costs £5, or £2.50 for those aged 16 and under.
More event details and an online entry form can be found on the Caterham Round Table website.

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.
