Catherine Hill

The Frome Cobble Wobble, established in 2009, is an individually timed bicycle hill climb sprint in Frome, Somerset, England.[1] It was first organised by the local community and Councillor Alvin Horsfall to celebrate the stage 5 of the 2009 Tour of Britain, which started in Frome.[2] It is set to become an annual event for the town.

The course begins at the bottom of Stony Street, takes a sharp turn as it joins Catherine Hill, and finishes at the end of the cobbles the top of the hill. The total length of the course is 179 yards,[3] and the average gradient is 1:7.[4]
