For the third year running, GBOL.cc is staging a miniature sportif, climbing the 1,275 ft to the top of Black Mountain.

We'll gather at Coppi at 14:30 on Wednesday 12 November, and set off for the 9 mile climb shortly after. The rules are simple: Entry is free, but for a measly £15  (payable on the day) you'll receive an entry card which you'll need to stamp at the top of the mountain. When returning to Coppi after your journey, the stamped card will be exchangeable for fine food and drink, worthy of Fausto himself.
