Rodney Pyne Memorial Peak Hill Climb
Peak Hill is our famous hill climb challenge which has been held annually since 2003 in the memory of local Hotelier and keen Cyclist, Rodney Pyne.
Our Hill Climb Course consists of approximately 165m of climbing over a distance of about 1.7km, giving an average gradient of around 13% with the steepest section topping out at 23% !
Peak Hill is an iconic climb and attracts cyclists from all over the UK. It’s featured in several national events including the 2012 Tour of Britain, a year in which Bradley Wiggins rode.
In 2006 SVCC hosted the National Hill Climb championship event on this course, which was won by the UK champion James Dobbin in a time of 4.44. This still remains the overall record for the event.
Check out our all time results page to see a complete list of times for every event since 2003.
The next event will be in October so keep an eye out for more information on here or our Facebook page.
