Climb to Conquer Cancer
Join us at Richmond’s Libby Hill as we Climb to Conquer Cancer and relive the excitement we all felt during the UCI World Championships in 2015! All routes take an easy tour around the beautiful historic Church Hill neighborhood before ascending the well-known Libby Hill cobble climb where the pros raced. You have the ride options to choose from either a 23, 43, or 62 mile route through the scenic and flat countryside that surrounds Richmond. The real fun occurs upon your return, as you climb up Libby Hill to compete to be King of the Mountain or Queen of the Mountain! Event proceeds benefit the Massey Cancer Center.
This year, there will not be a “light” version of Climb. There will not be any rest stops or an after-party. You will start your ride from the top of Libby Hill and then at the end of the ride you’ll have your timed climb up Libby Hill. For those who have done the event before, the 3 mile urban route and the first climb have been eliminated for 2022.
Pick up your chip between 7:30 and 9:00 at the top of Libby Hill. This year there is no specified a time that each wave begins. Instead, you may begin your ride whenever you would like, but keep in mind that climbs up the hill will be timed only between 10:30 and 1:00. In case you are not certain, it is recommend that those doing the longest distance leave around 8:30 or so, those doing the middle distance leave around 9:30, and those doing the shortest distance can leave later. If you are a slower rider, start earlier to ensure you finish on time.
