Boardsie hill climb challenge 2018 - Howth TT

So after some discussion here

It's proposed to run a hill climb up this segement on Sunday March 25th at 10 am (open to suggestions on this)

Timing will be by means of Strava....eh, not sure else what else needs to be said, think that's all!

So, who's in?

Sunday's are reserved exclusively for road racing for me, I'll be busy getting my backside handed to me at the Des Hanlon!

So I will be handing over the title to someone else for this year!

if it's howth, the only debate would be village side or sutton side.

I would guess people are more likely to be blocked by pedestrians/traffic if going from village side?

Dang. If that's the case for others, maybe Saturday is better? Otherwise you can have a crack at it later that day (an advantage of timing via strava)

10 on a sunday in Howth is probably not the best time to do it. It would need to be earlier really. Howth gets busy,.

Anyway, I say both sides up to the summit each time, with best aggregate time declared the winner

First IVCA race of the year I think. I only get so many passes and must use them wisely.

I'm away that weekend, if it's decided to go on the Saturday I'd do it early to give you all a laugh at my time

I'm out of the country that weekend (25th), but like last year I'll post a "right I'd better start training" effort in the following week or two.

Later that day?

You've got a sense of humour Colm, the chances of me doing the Des (150k) and then cycling the 55k round trip to Howth later that day are slim!
