It’s that time of year again where damn fools try their best to get to the top of a big hill in as fast a time as possible. You’ve guessed it, it’s the Rake Hill Climb.
This week I caught up with Lancashire Road Club press officer Ian McKinley to find out a bit more about the race and their involvement with it.
The Rake Hill Climb takes place each year, this year will be the 87th event of which originally started out to simply see how far up The Rake you could get without falling off. However once people started to do this more and more, it was turned into an actual race.
