The climb, pronounced ‘Kevn Llan’, meaning ‘Back of the Church’ is a 200 metre monster, with a gradient of 25% and by far the steepest climb in the locality. Riders will start at the junction with Primrose Hill at the bottom, and ride to the finish line just prior to the entrance to Aberystwyth Science Park at the top.
Hill climb specialists are notorious for saving weight on their machines, down to the last gram. That’s why EDCO have developed their Supersport series of wheels which combine their superlight 9k/8mm twill weave carbon rims, carbon spokes and their Swiss made Victory hubs. The Neggia model in tubular format weighs in at just 950g for the pair! Visit them at www.edco-wheels.co.uk
