H. Hill Climb ride. Ride leader: Ken
Oct 2 @ 9:00 am – 11:30 am

This ride will leave BNS at 09:00 so that riders taking part in the hill climb have time to sign on and do a little warming up before the climb itself.

As per last year, once all the riders are up the climb then we’ll move on to the roll down (Tram Hill).

Once we’ve got those results sorted then it’s on through Ludgershall and Piddington, up to the base of Muswell Hill to the Amies residence for the prize giving and a bit of a social.

As we’re once again sponsored by Fullers, then every entrant will earn themselves a free beer and there are some very nice prizes on offer!

Simon has very generously offered to sort out sausage baps, baked potatoes and salads, plus teas and coffees.

Hopefully we will get a good few cake donations as last year, so there should be plenty of choice for food and snacks.

Other halves and children are more than welcome (with plenty of parking space). If there is enough interest we can set up a kids hillclimb on Simon’s driveway.
