BIKERS ASSOCIATION OF NORTH DEVON
Hartland Hill Climb
If you ever wondered what a hill climb is? Well I wasn't so sure but I found out on 6th April.
Knowing that the Hartland Quay Hill Climb is a regular date in the North Devon calendar, and that it involved motorcycles, was enough for me to brave the snow to venture down to the edge of North Devon.
The whole point
of a hill climb is to drive, or in this case ride, up a hill with lots
of twisty bits, faster than the other person. I quote the National
Hill Climb Association:
Of course there were the odd spills, rider 791 fought a ferocious battle with the rear wheel of his machine constantly trying to overtake the front in his attempt to take glory. Unfortunately the rear wheel finally did overtake the front just in front of me. Luckily there was little damage to rider or bike.
Thanks go to all the riders and the unsung heroes that are the marshalls who combined to make such an entertaining spectacle. Nice one, I shall be back.
