Storm the Tower Hill Climb

Saturday 21st April 2018

Isle of Man Cyclefest’s unique take on the traditional British hill climb gives our budding cyclists the opportunity to race against the clock on the world-famous TT Motorcycle Course. Held over 1.5 miles of this most infamous ribbon of tarmac, competitors will power themselves in lung-bursting fashion, out of Ramsey, and up past the Albert Tower – built to commemorate the visit of Prince Albert and Queen Victoria. With fully closed roads, riders are free to take the racing line made famous by so many others as they desperately count down each of the iconic corners; Hairpin, Waterworks, and (finally!) Gooseneck. Finishing at 700ft above sea level, riders get to soak up the stunning view out over the sea to England and Scotland, but only once they’ve taken the chequered flag!
