The 23’rd Annual Tour of the Hilltowns took place this past Saturday, June 25. This road race solely put on by NCC volunteers has been a New England staple for the last 23 years, well known for the challenging E. Hawley Rd climb and beautiful scenery
As Melissa and I were just gathering some serious speed on the descent after the hillclimb was over, right before we were about to hit the half mile of chip and seal road on the Westhampton side of the Westhampton/Chesterfield town line, she said that tonight’s hillclimb was beautiful.
As we cruised up Spring Street, we passed the first few arrivals for tonight’s hill climb at the corner of Chesterfield Road. They will never admit it, but I believe they were intimidated by the C ride peloton.
The rainstorms cleared just in time for a beautiful night of riding. Eight of us met at 5:30 PM to ride our Hadley route.
