First run in 1930, Monsal Hill Climb has been on the hill climb calendar for an amazing 86 years. This event was started by a few mates riding out to Monsal Head at the end of the track season and timing each other up the hill, at this time it was an unmade road.
The event now attracts around 150 local riders from club level to seasoned professionals. 2009 was the first running of the event on a closed road. 2015 saw a record entry of 150 riders!!!
Over the past few years the Monsal Hill Climb has proved to be very popular with a full field of 150 riders plus reserves for the past 4 years.
