The bride is back in Hill Bill: Volume 2, presented by Educators Credit Union, this Sunday, Sept. 18. It's a cyclocross spectacle at The Rock Snow Park that includes a hundred-dollar hand-up, hard coffee samples, huge heart-pounding hills, a live drum set, novelty bottles and epic photos from Zachary Seib Photography to showcase the fun of cyclocross suffering. Plus there's the Hugh Jill fat bike race (just $10!) and a free Kiddo Cross race for those under 9 years old.
The day features racing for all ages and skill levels – cyclocross bike and lycra not required. Pre-register before midnight on Wednesday to save $10; otherwise registration then re-opens at 8 a.m. on race day.
Here's a look back at the hill-arious madness of Volume 1.
