Big Green Week
We've seen cyclists power their way up to the top and now the electric bikers will get the chance to tackle Park Street as part of Bristol's Big Green Week.
The world's first electric bike championships will take place on the city's steepest shopping street, with contestants from more than ten leading e-bike manufacturers due to take part.
It follows the Red Bull Hill Chasers event earlier this year, when Park Street became a bike-only zone.
Robert Llewellyn, star of TV space comedy Red Dwarf and presenter of Scrapheap Challenge, will compere the event on Sunday, June 10, and announce the winner of our electric bike competition.

E-bike riders will race for a trophy donated by Good Energy, a renewable energy supplier. The event, organised by Atmosphere Electric Bikes, also includes static displays of e-bikes, a have-a-go area for people to try out a machine and a parade of e-bikes. The event is part of a car-free fun day on Park Street and a week-long festival across the city, which starts tomorrow with Bristol's Big Market.
Cori Flynn, manager of the Harbourside Market, will be launching a Suitcase Sale where there will be crepes and cakes, handmade clothes and prints, second-hand books, clothes and curiosities crammed into a bundle of suitcases. There will also be local food and drink at stalls in St Nicholas Market and Cascade Steps.
On Friday, June 15, at 3.30pm, local wildlife expert Ed Drewitt will lead a ferry tour around the Harbour pointing out hidden bird life and wild flowers alongside his passionate commentary.
A giant ceilidah in Park Street, on Sunday, June 10, is another of the planned celebrations, which also include a series of talks and films on green energy and nature, a get-growing garden trail, the appearance of Bristol's Green Mermaid, and sustainable tours of the ss Great Britain and At-Bristol.
