In this featured video, GCN (Global Cycling Network) is going to find out what it’s like to attempt the uphill hour challenge.

Here’s what GCN has to say about attempting the uphill hour challenge

Everesting is really hard work, and it takes up a lot of time. The Hour Record is incredibly expensive and therefore not inclusive for the average road cyclist.

However, riding a bike uphill can be miserable for everyone, and can be the ultimate test for cylcling.

Otherwise known as VAM, this value is an important metric that pro cyclists can use to measure their effort.

A few years ago Emma Pooley set a world record for the most meters climbed in an hour, but we decided to twist the rules a little, and we’d love to see you join in and see what you can do.
