I wanted to write a short note to let you know about our club's (Contra Costa Cycling Club or Kovarus Wells Fargo team) annual hill climb on June 22. The climb starts at the kiosk on North Gate Road and climbs 1740 ft in 6.2 miles to the ranger house just below the junction. Last year, Nate English had the best time at 23:32.
The hill climb is open to riders of all abilities. Although this is a USAC event, we do have a public/CAT 5 category. One day USAC licenses are available for purchase at the event. The event flyer is here -
All proceeds from this event go to the Pete Zucker Foundation (For Pete's Sake) which raises funds to support research into finding a cure for ALS. Pete was a long time club member who was afflicted with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease), and recently passed away. Our club wanted to do something special for Pete and for those afflicted with this terrible disease.
