Sheffield Urban Cyclo is calling all Sheffield cyclists, commuters, club riders, junior Shredders and Bromptoneers to take part in the forthcoming Park Hill UpRise Urban HillClimb on Saturday 25th March.
The event, part of The Festival of The Outdoors, a month-long festival of events and activities that showcase why Sheffield is The Outdoor City, will take place on the cobbled urban hill of the iconic Park Hillflats.
Entry fees for the Park Hill UpRise Urban Hill Climb start at £5 for the younger junior race, £8 for older juniors, and £12 for adult and Brompton Categories with 100% of the entry fees split between two local charities, Roundabout, a South Yorkshire youth shelter project, and Woodhead Mountain Rescue, part of a national network of Mountain Rescue units who assist and rescue anyone using Sheffield and neighbouring Peak District’s more rugged open spaces.
Sheffield Urban Cyclo specialises in running cycling events in the urban environment with races for all generations and abilities to take part in.
Commenting on the event Sheffield Urban Cyclo event manager, Adam Simmonite, says: “The Park Hill UpRise is an event for both experienced riders and anyone who wants to have a go, so includes junior, adult and Brompton Bike categories.
“Sheffield Urban Cyclo events have always been about highlighting cycling in the urban environment and this short course and challenging climb is a great way to highlight some urban commuter heroes, club riders, ‘have-a -go’ heroes – and all riders in between.
“I’m looking forward to welcoming individuals, groups from clubs – or businesses – from the cycling city of Sheffield on the start line on the 25th March.”
Dave Capper, Westfield Health CEO and key sponsor of the event, alongside J E James Sheffield and the Giant Store Sheffield, added: “The Sheffield Urban Cyclo event combines so many things that are important to Westfield Health: getting outside, getting active, and challenging ourselves to find the resilience to conquer some of the biggest ups and downs that our home city has to offer. That’s why we’re incredibly proud to be the title sponsor of this year’s race and to help raise money for some vitally important local causes.”
