George Street Bike Challenge for Major Taylor
Sunday, July 22, 2012
See how fast you can pedal up George Street, a two-block quadbuster that was a training ground for 1899 world cycling champion Major Taylor.
It's one rider at a time against the clock in this uphill time trial presented by Barney's Bicycle and the Seven Hills Wheelmen.
The distance is 500 feet and the average grade is 18 percent (but it's closer to 24 percent at one point).
Entry fee is $20 and includes a T-shirt. Proceeds benefit the Major Taylor Association.
All the details on the race, the raffle, the registration -- and a short video:
