Hagg Hill/Stephen Hill are one of seven hills selected to be selected as part of this year’s Magnificent Seven bike challenge on Sunday 19 March.
The Magnificent Seven is a unique cycling event, the first of its kind in Sheffield. Not for the fainthearted, the race is a cross between a sportive and a hill climb, that invites participants to face seven of the city’s toughest hills.
The route, which is nearly 27 miles, presents each rider with over 3,800ft of climbing, with inclines ranging from 9 to 23 per cent.
It’s expected that the roads in this area will be closed for around 30 minutes around the estimated times of 10:50-11:20am. Residents living nearby should have received a letter.
You’re encouraged to turn out on the day to support the riders.
Several Crosspool roads will be gritted this winter following the results of a public consultation into winter road maintenance.
Council chiefs have changed their mind on the gritting of 141 roads. Local streets including Hagg Hill, Coldwell Lane, Stephen Hill, Watt Lane, Back Lane and Bole Hill Road will now be included on gritting routes.
Crosspool Forum is inviting local residents to join in with the planting of 1,000 crocus and 3,000 daffodil bulbs along Manchester Road.
If you can spare an hour and would like to come along, we’ll be meeting at 10am this Saturday, 2nd October, at the top of Hagg Lane, at its junction with Manchester Road.
The local Beaver group also has 1,000 crocuses of their own, which they are planning to plant in the shape of their emblem on the sloping verge which flanks the Manchester Road Pelican crossing’s tactile paved surface.
