After watching Cycling Malvern YT video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_6fyF0vVd8
Carpark Hill Climbs in Melbs is quite new and taking off!
I haven't heard anything like this in Adelaide as yet. Does anyone know of any rumblings about starting such a thing?
Any cycling clubs looking into it?
I would sign up in a heart beat if it comes to Adelaide.
Thoughts people? Yay or Nay to the idea?
Potential car park buildings?
Adelaide city council likely to get in the way?? Too much red tape??
If its not such a thing... yet, where would be the best point to get the ball (wheels) rolling on this?
Did one in Perth WA twenty years ago, but now at 76, not looking to do another !
I have tracked down VTWO who organised the event, they are looking to go national!
Naturally they are working through legal and organisational requirements to get it up and running.
That's good news. It's always best to let an experienced group take it on.
They have some infrastructure around the organising of it, understand of the relevant insurances so they can fire away. Hopefully it comes to Adelaide sooner rather than later.
Chase some hobbits on bikes up a car park!
it would be an absolute buzz , it would bring something completley different to cycling , can you imagine a rainy day spent blasting up a smooth concrete incline undercover ? one could ponder chainring size all day .lets hope it comes here
Hope they have some age group stuff - happy to drop a few "youngsters" though ;-P
you might be able to get a sponsor on board, like the carpark or get a charity involved
They did a fixed gear category in the Melbourne one. Would totally want to ride that. Had a few friends did it, and they said the atmosphere was just tops. Fingers crossed it gets off the ground... See what I did there? Yes, I am a father.
