Hagg Hill/Stephen Hill included in bike challenge

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.
