Dundas Sydenham Hill 2 km Time Trial

I have been casually running a time trial on Sydenham Hill in Dundas for many years. An amusment for our cycling friends. The 2 km course starts at the corner of Park and Sydenham. There is a cross walk line there. The finish is the larger telephone pole about 10 m before the fruitstand (and Fallsview Rd). This gives you enough time to slow up and turn onto Fallsview...and check your time! I sometimes have a finish line sign (that disappears) on the hydro pole. The climb is around 100 m. in elevation. There is a Strava segment that I also set up. See below.

(3 min) Thanks to Mara.
If you have never climbed the hill this is kinda what it's like, edited to 3 minutes. The fun starts at about 60 seconds.

Strava segment
I have also setup a Strava Segment. It's called Sydenham Road Climb. The 2k one. There are quite a few.
