  • Description

    Full title reads: "Kent. 37th Annual Hill Climb Championship. E W Hussey pedals to victory up Brasted Hill, 667 yards long. (average gradient 1-7), in 1 min 54 2/5 secs. 98 started! (Filmed for first time)."

    Brasted, Kent.

    Cyclists race off from start of the hill climb.

    Various shots of cyclists riding their bikes up the steep incline. They find is tough going. People at the side of the lane cheer them on. Later riders seem to be making easier going - perhaps these are the better riders.

    We are introduced to Mr Hussey of Finsbury Park Harriers who won the time trial. He says that he finds talking to the cameras harder than the hill climb.
