Hill climbing is a lung busting form of uphill bike racing, an individual time trial that challenges you to overcome gravity and gradient for victory. It’s a niche seasonal discipline of cycling with UCI illegal bikes that is growing more popular with cyclists across the world, but has a long history in Britain. Jon dived into the weird world of hill climbs at the 2019 British National Championships.
