Open Hill Climb - Ditchling Beacon GH/90 at Ditchling Village Hall

October 30, 2016 from 8am to 10am
Sep 22
 

Sussex Nomads Open Hill Climb 2016

Our second open hill climb on Ditchling Beacon is one month away! It's being held on Sunday 30 October 2016, starting at 8:00 am. Event HQ (where you'll also be able to get coffee, cake and bacon butties) is at Ditchling Village Hall.

You could win up to £130

As usual, there will be prizes of up to £30 in five categories, with equal prize money for male and female competitors. This year, there will also be special awards of up to £100 for beating the male or female course record.

If you wish to ride you MUST pre-enter on http://www.cyclingtimetrials.org.uk/events    before 18th October 2016 - this is an open event and not a club event, so you can’t enter on the line as you do in all our other TTs.

Non-members: you are welcome to join us on our club run, heading for one of our favourite destinations for coffee and cake, afterwards.

Club Runs and Come & Try It Rides

As traditional as Sunday lunch!

Click here for a full club run listing, and get every Sunday off to a good start.

If you're new to group riding, our Come & Try It rides, normally on the first Sunday of the month, are for you - a gentle 12-15 mile (20-25 km) ride to join the rest of the club for coffee and cake.

NEW RIDERS click here for general information about club runs and to see the start point on a map, or click here for information about ride organistation and etiquette.

We always need RIDE LEADERS and LANTERNES ROUGES, especially for the slower-paced groups. If you can help by downloading the course and looking out for riders less experienced than you, please make yourself known at the start.

RIDE LEADERS click here for ways in which you can make your rides run more smoothly and be more satisfying for everyone.
