Coleby Downhill

Coleby Downhill Challenge is the Gravity Sports Race organised by the Hykeham Lions in association with the Coleby Village Hall Committee.

This is a fabulous event where racers create gravity powered cars called Soapbox’s to race downhill as fast as possible in the beautiful village of Coleby.

The bi-annual event started in 2014 saw just Soapbox’s race down the hill however 2016 we also added Soapbox Sidecars and Gravity Bikes.

Gravity Bikes are small Gravity powered bikes with no pedals to get them going. The rider sits as low as possible in a streamline position to maximise speed.
