On Saturday 23 March, Arch Hill was swarming with mountain bikers for the inaugural Arch Hill Spin. The track was in optimum condition after three working bees and the endless summer of 2013.
45 riders in 13 teams showed up in a flurry of fancy and not-so-fancy dress to tackle the 3 hour relay race with an – actually quite literal – twist. At the start of each lap you had to spin the giant wheel of chance. This could have you doing anything from push-ups, pumping up a tyre, dressing up or getting an instant Planet Cycles spot-prize.
After 3 hours of fun, the team Hundies 4 #fresh took out the top spot by taking full advantage of a controversial game changer that gave bonus laps for bags of litter, followed closely by TWB and American Dream tying for second place.
A fun day was had by all and we hope to see many more people for the next Arch Hill Spin in December.
