Mam Nick Hill Climb

Although I'm not a member of Rutland CC - Sheffield's oldest and best

cycling club - I have done a few miles with them, my favourite being

the Saturday morning 'Tea-Cake' club run. It's a decent 40 miler that

covers some of the Peak Districts best roads, including a road I've

grown to love that leads into Pilsley. I like that road so much I've

decided to name a shirt after it that will be released later in the



A regular climb on the tea-cake is over Cressbrook. This is when the

'blue touch paper' is lit and anyone with the legs will mix it up -

unless they are saving themselves for a race the next day. I expect

that Brendon Tyree will have done his share of screw turning on that

ride over the years. Brendon's the lad who took these photos of the

Mam Nick hill climb from last year. He is a classy rider who raced for

GB back in his younger days and reliable rumour has it that he's had

the better of Sir Bradley Wiggins.


It made sense for us to sponsors the event as it took place at Mam

Nick. So we made a handful of exclusive Mamnick cycling cap for best

times of the day.


Here are a few photos of the hill climb by Brendon himself.
