Towards the top of the hills it was like passing through a blurry tunnel of colour and noise being cheered on to the line. An experience I'd recommend to any cyclist, whether it be competing or simply mingling in the crowd soaking up the electric atmosphere and cheering on the riders.
In the morning was the Catford Hill Climb, I completed it in a time of 2.15.6 placing me 29th out of 110 riders. The fastest time was set by Richard Bussell in 1.50.9.
In the afternoon with achy legs I recorded a time of 02.08.9 which placed me 26th out of 110 riders. The fastest rider on the day was set by James Lowden in an insane time of 01:51.5.
