Description: See how fast you can pedal up George Street, a 500-foot quad-buster that was a proving ground for 1899 world champ Major Taylor, "the Worcester Whirlwind," and generations of bicyclists ever since. The grade averages 18 percent. It's one rider at a time against the clock in this uphill time trial in downtown Worcester, Mass., on the fourth Sunday in July -- the 17th edition of the George Street competition presented by Barney's Bicycle and the Seven Hills Wheelmen. Proceeds benefit the Major Taylor Association. Contact: Lynne at
