Allen Clark Memorial Hill Climb

October 04 2015
Waitsfield, Vermont, USA
 
 
 

The Allen Clark Memorial Hill Climb, the annual grunt-fest that has fast become a rite of cycling passage in the Mad River Valley, is a grueling time trial that rises 1,600 vertical feet in 6.2 miles, from the intersection of Routes 100 and 17 to the top of Appalachian Gap. The event is named in honor of long-time Mad River Valley resident, Allen Clark. An avid cyclist who took up biking late in life, he rode 2,500-3,000 annually in Vermont. Allen especially loved the challenge of the Appalachian Gap. This event is a tribute to Allen’s life and a fundraiser for Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports, an organization that meant a great deal to him.
