Supporters gather to watch the National Hill Climb.

The British National Hill Climb Championship is a hill climbing competition held annually by Cycling Time Trials with the location varying year on year. The first edition was in 1944 and it has been won by some of the best all-round British cyclists, such as Brian Robinson, Paul Curran, Malcolm Elliot, Chris Boardman and Jeff Williams.[1]

Historically, competitors often chose to use a fixed gear bicycle for lower weight and the ability to maintain pedalling momentum. Due to advances in gearing technology, geared bikes have dominated the field over the past decade.[2]

2018 Championship[edit]

The 2018 British National Hill Climb Championships were held on Pea Royd Lane in Stocksbridge on 28 October 2018.
