Cyclists in the borough are urged to go online and nominate Richmond Hill in the UK’s Perfect Hill competition, coordinated by British Cycling.
This follows on from last month’s launch of the Sky Ride local programme, a series of small informal cycle rides, coordinated by British Cycling and Richmond Council. The group rides are led by British Cycling trained ride leaders, who guide participants along the route and provide tips and advice on cycle safety and skills.
Backed by multiple world and Olympic champion Sir Chris Hoy, the nationwide search for the ‘perfect hill’ is aimed at reminding people how much fun cycling can be, anyone in Britain can nominate their chosen hill, the entry criteria are: location, views, where it takes them, historical significance and most importantly what the hill means to them.
To nominate Richmond Hill, go to; www.goskyride.com for more information. The deadline for nominations is the 23rd July. The general public and a panel of three judges including Sir Chris Hoy, the Editor of the Lonely Planet Cycling Guide and Etain O’Carroll, will shortlist the entries, before crowning one hill the UK’s most perfect for cycling.
