Dundas Sydenham Hill 2 km Time Trial

I have been casually running a time trial on Sydenham Hill in Dundas for many years. An amusment for our cycling friends. The 2 km course starts at the corner of Park and Sydenham. There is a cross walk line there. The finish is the larger telephone pole about 20 m before the fruitstand (and Fallsview Rd). This gives you enough time to slow up and turn onto Fallsview...and check your time! I sometimes have a finish line sign (that disappears) on the hydro pole. The climb is around 100 m. in elevation.

Start at Park Street

If you have a bike computer just zero it and go til the pole mentioned above. It's 2 KM. Email us your times. Time, date, name, (john@johnfarrdesign.com) Give it a try and get in the standings.

(3 min) Thanks to Mara.
If you have never climbed the hill this is kinda what it's like, edited to 3 minutes. The fun starts at about 60 seconds.
