Distance: 45.00km

Duration: 1hr 25

TT season is over, so Hilly Night returns. I plan to do this most weeks from now until late Sept / early Oct, but it will depend on numbers and weather.

With a 7pm start we should be back before sunset (at 8.35pm this week). Lights will be needed from next week onwards.

For the newcomers, (Mike's) Hilly Night is a fast-paced ride that takes in a series of seven local climbs. It's 28 miles with 1850ft of climbing. Traditionally it's ridden pretty much flat-out from the start, and everyone gets dropped eventually. Average speed at the front is usually 20mph+, but once the climbing starts everyone tends to find their own pace.

Meet at Bramcote Park. Route shown takes the southern branch on the way out (No Man's Lane), and the loop at the end is anticlockwise (Cloves then Drum).



Not sure about fast this week, probably do the shortcut!
