The Uphill Hour Challenge - What Can You Do?

Published on July 12th 2020


Everesting is really hard work, and takes up a lot of time. The Hour Record is incredibly expensive and therefore not inclusive for the average road cyclist. However, riding a bike uphill can be miserable for everyone, and can be the ultimate test for cycling. Otherwise known as VAM, this value is an important metric that pro cyclists can use to measure their effort. A few years ago Emma Pooley set a world record for the most meters climbed in an hour, but we decided to twist the rules a little, and we'd love to see you join in and see what you can do.
