Hill Climb Results 2013 - 06/10/20213
Well done to Andy Feather for setting a club record on our hill climb course with a stunning winning time of 4:39
It was a lovely warm autumn morning and we had a brilliant turnout of 38 riders going for a blast up the hill with a big show from the Exeter Uni team. This year for the first time we ran a handicap competition which was won by George Pym.
Thanks the organisers, time keepers, cake makers and riders for making it one of the best attended club hill climbs in recent years.

New Sunday Clubs

After last years success with the Summer Social 100 - we have added a Spring Social 100 to the calendar on the 19th May. Hope to see you there, should be the same format as last time - see how many manage a pint and Sunday dinner this time!
Introductory Rides go Fortnightly
Due to the huge success and enthusiasm behind these rides - we have stepped up and put them on bi-weekly. The next ride will be on 10th November 9am Odeon. Spread the word it's a great way to get started with group riding and see what the clubs all about.
Sunday Club Ride Changes
We are now operating with a maximum group size of 20 riders due to popularity. If more riders turn out we will split the groups into mixed ability groups a few minutes apart so please listen to your ride leaders before setting off as they may ask you to depart in a particular group.
The club is now offering two sunday rides - while there is demand, we are operating a faster paced ride in addition to the standard Sunday ride. The main differences with this group are:
- This group goes in front of the main club run as a faster paced steady race training ride for experienced riders.
- It has a lower level of rider support.
- It will follow (for at least the first 25miles) the published route. If riders find it unsuitable they can then drop back to the main run.
- An additional mileage may be added on towards the end.
If you need any Club kit, you can call Greg Rorke on 07794106357 and arrange payment/collection from the Bike Shed. Hoodies are also available from web-engineer's offices in the town centre - call 01392 253304 to arrange collection/payment.
Club Subs are due
