The elevation gain of 533 feet doesn't seem so daunting when taken at a moderate pace but at time trial effort it's a challenge. The overall record of 6:19 is held by pro cyclist Sid Tamberlay; the amateur record is 6:55.
We'll award prizes in four categories: mens, womens, mens 50+ and womens 50+. The prize is a $75 gift certificate from PV Bicycle Center.
The women will kick off at 9:30, the men at 10:00. Meet and sign in at the lookout point by the top of the climb along Trump Golf Course. Both races take place on Sunday March 6.
Are you up to the challenge? Come and enjoy the sport, the folks, and the view.
