Sunday 29 September
The club will be staging the John Bornhoft Memorial Hill Climb at 11.00am on Saturday 29 September up the slopes of Leith Hill. This race is popular with both competitors and spectators alike and a great opportunity for the club to put something back into the local racing scene.
For those new to cycling, the UK road and TT racing side is a collaborative effort in that all the races are staged by clubs volunteering – there are no events put on by federations or companies such as in triathlons or sportives, so without clubs such as us staging the events there will be no races.
To stage any race a number of volunteers are needed to fulfil roles without which the race cannot take place. For this event we need people to marshal the course, help at the start and finish and help run the HQ and refreshments side during the event and help clear up afterwards, in total about a dozen or so people are needed.
So if you’ve raced in Wheelers colours, attended any of the club events (track weekend, MTB training, road race training, BBQ’s etc) or enjoyed the club runs over the year please take this opportunity to join others who’ve done the same to help put something back into the club.
If you are able to volunteer, please add your name via the forum.
There’ll be a separate post asking for cakes nearer the time of the event as well as how to enter. As well as helping with the event, we encourage as many people to ride as possible.
