18 riders must be a record turnout for the hill climb.
Everyone benefited from a following wind so some quick times were recorded.
George Fox just took the win by 1 second from guest rider Duncan Thorpe.
Peter the 1966 National hill climb champion proved at 67 he can still get 
up a hill and the Berry brothers underlined their potential with a couple 
of good rides.

Six members of the Club participated on the Cat & Fiddle Sportive for Cyctic Fibrosis recently. The route was only 55 miles but it included the very hilly 7 mile Cat & Fiddle climb.The bonus was there were also some great descents at 45 - 50mph!

2012 Trophy Presentation Evening...

We had a great evening at the club's 2012 Trophy Presentation evening and it was really good to see a lot of members there. The guest speaker was Julian Jenkinson, whose informative and highly amusing tales of his personal journey through running, triathlon and the different branches of cycling went down very well, especially his 3000+ mile RAM trip - Ride Across America stories.

There is a gallery from the evening in the Gallery section....called "2012 Trophy Night"
