2013 Kings Gap Time Trial will be held SATURDAY, AUGUST 31.
Registration will be open soon!
It was a great day to challenge the mountain! Forty-three registered participants chose to 'race against the clock' in the 2nd annual individual hill climb time trial. Each rider took to their bikes and went off at one minute timed increments to see how fast they could ascend the Kings Gap road. The course was almost 3.5 miles in length, with each rider crossing the finish line at the front of the Cameron/Masland Mansion.
The first rider left the start line at exactly 8:45 and that rider left her mark! Coming across the finish line with a time of 15:26, New Cumberland's Danielle Melhorn took first place overall for the females!
A little later on, John Salus of Mechanicsburg put the hammer down for the guys.....with a time of 11:10. He was blazing fast and absolutely no one could do better that morning. John's time bested last year's fastest time by 33 seconds!
After all had crossed the finish line, the participants enjoyed music, bagels, muffins, bananas, juice, warm coffee and the raffle pull! Multiple gift certificates and items from local bike shops, which were generously donated, were drawn and awarded. The event concluded with the awards for the top OVERALL times for males and females.
1st place- John Salus 11:10
2nd place- John McMaster 12:13
3rd place- Kevin Burkey 12:30
1st place- Danielle Melhorn 15:26
2nd place- Charlotte Yanno 17:12
3rd place- Sonja Hess 21:08

Is Sunday September 30th on your calendar?
We're getting closer to the climb up the mountain road! Only four weeks until the time trial that benefits the Friends of Kings Gap, a volunteer group that takes care of that beautiful park that we love to visit on our bikes!
You know how fun it is to see just how fast you can take your bike up the hill, so if you haven't already registered you still have time..... but September 22 is the registration cut-off! No event day registration, so print and mail in your registration form....tell your friends to register and challenge you up that hill, or to come out to support and cheer you at the top!
And...just like last year, your registration includes a performance t-shirt! Plus we will again have a raffle (one raffle ticket is included in your registration) of multiple gift certificates and items from our local bike shops!!!
The event is a community outreach project for the Harrisburg Bicycle Club and its members. It is designed to be a fun event and is not a sanctioned USA Cycling race event. It is open for all levels of riders, amateur and competitive, age 15 and up. Registration is limited to 150 participants. All profits from the event registration fee will go to the Friends of Kings Gap.
If you have ever enjoyed a ride up to the top of King's Gap, then you know what beauty is and just how lucky we are to have this is our own backyard! The 3.5 mile climb is a gentle ascent with an average grade of 4-5 percent. Last year we had 40 participants do the climb, challenge themselves and raise funds for a worthy organization.
Between August 25 and September 22, registration is $30. All registrations must be postmarked by September 22 to participate in the event.
