From it's humble beginings in the 1950's, the annual White Lane Hill Climb has become a local classic. Every year the crowds seem to encorage faster and faster times. One thing always remains the same, and that's the famous 'Cafe du Bec' tea stall, which is always stacked with cakes, sandwiches, teas, coffees etc etc to keep the hordes of hungry supporters (and riders) in fine fettle.
