The Rampage – Prepare For The Zombie Apocalypse, Raise Money For Charity

by 1

We’ve all seen the zombie movies where people find themselves running through a concrete multi storey carpark. Up they run, in and out of pillars, up, looking side to side for exits, up and up until the inevitable roof top finish arrives and the eating can begin.

Pedal for your lives!

Picturing a horde of hungry half-deads might be just what you need for this event: a hill climb in the John Lewis multi storey car park in Leeds, called ‘The Rampage’.

The website says:


It goes on:

‘The Rampage is an exciting new cycling challenge. A lung-busting uphill battle between two riders to the summit of a car park. The first rider to collapse across the finish is through to the next round. The heats continue until we have one rider standing.’

Hill Climb
If you’re not pulling this sort of face on a hill climb, you’re not trying hard enough.

This actually sounds like a lot fun – although it’s a perpetual climb with no flat decks, so it will be brutal! Even better, it’s all to raise money for LandAid, a youth homelessness charity. As well as the cycling there will also be food, drink and a DJ so it should be great evening.

You need to buy tickets in advance, here. No entries on the day, but watching the event is free.

Hannah came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. Having worked in policy and project management roles at the Scottish Parliament and in local government, Hannah had organisational skills that SIngletrack needed. She also likes bikes, and likes to write.

Hannah likes all bikes, but especially unusual ones. If it’s a bit odd, or a bit niche, or made of metal, she’s probably going to get excited. If it gets her down some steep stuff, all the better. She’ll give most things a go once, she tries not to say no to anything on a bike, unless she really thinks it’s going to hurt. She’s pretty good with steri-strips.

More than bikes, Hannah likes what bikes do. She thinks that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments.

Hannah tries to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.

    Sounds brutal. An indoor, urban hillclimb.
    Better not let Red Bull know though…
