Club Freewheeling Competition
13th October, 9.30am
Location 'Dead Man's Hill' near Dungworth.

A freewheel comp is basically how it reads. All riders have their cranks arms zip tied to prevent pedalling and are let free by the starter. The rider rolls off down the hill and the winner is the rider who gets the furthest distance. In this case down Dead Mans Hill and freewheel up Stopes towards Stannington. Riders can weave but all riders must not cross the white line, including the S bend at the bottom of the hill. This caused controversy in 2008 so this year, we will have observers watching for anyone gaining an advantage!!
