Hello There!
Annual reminder for the Club Hill Climb (Sun 7th Oct) @ Bishop Wilton.
Last event of the excellent Club SPOCO TT Series which Dave Short has organised so well.
Sign on the line, just like you have done for the Thurs evening Club events.

When: Sunday 7th October
Start: Bishop Wilton at 11am.
Entry: On the Line as for Club SPOCO Events. £5 Senior; U18 £2

(You must be a paid up member of Clifton CC or a CTT-affiliated Club to ride -> you can join Clifton CC on the day – see 'Membership' on Home page)

The climb is the minor road, which goes up from the village X-roads to join the A166. Finish just prior to the junction.
Max gradient 20%, distance 1.2 Km
(time of ride is somewhere between 5m30s & 12mins)

If you feel like having a go, having a blast, then come along....
Whether you are up for racing or just want to test your fitness out after a Summer of Club rides, you’ll be made very welcome. Race bike, touring bike, MTB, tandem…………come along.
Remember Junior is Under 18yrs and minimum age for CTT-organised events is 12yrs (with signed Parental Consent Forms).

Depart 09-30 from Exhibition Square (infront of the City Art Gallery) for those riding out together or meet there at Bishop Wilton village cross roads.
(for safety & visibility, please do not park at the start or on the course - find a verge off the road of the hill climb - Ta)
See you there
Claire & Robert

PS. I am looking for a 'Pusher Off' and ideally a 'Marshall' for the minor side road junction if you want to help out - let me know or sign up on the Volunteer sheet. Thanks :)

Hi All - just made a quick update to my ditty below after some feedback from Dr Dave, who has uncovered: "the results for 2011 (as recorded in previous discussion board result listings) have Heather's time that year as 6:50 so a bit faster than Abi"
-> I think the Committee should be asking Dr Dave to support our record keeping and get us all into order :wink:


A great morning, thanks to all who made it out to the Club Hill Climb Event today.

Big thanks to Dawn, DaveI, Siobhan, Emily and Robert for making the event happen - it was a cold day for the timekeepers / marshalls / pusher off. Much appreciated.
And a very big congratulations to ALL the riders. Super times, never before have we seen so many 6-7minute times posted.

A very special mention to Abi's performance. Her super ride this morning is a new female Junior event course record! The best womens time is held by Heather Tuffs of 6m50s (we think, as our records are not that systematic). I am sure that Heather would want to join us all in congratulating Abi on this exceptional ride.

& Congratulations to the Overall winner, Dave, who joined us for the event as he lives in Bishop Wilton. Maybe a spot of local knowledge helps? Nonetheless, a worthy winner. Only 2 seconds behind him, in 2nd place overall, was the 1st Junior finisher, Guy Drabble from the Northern Ride Club in Malton. 1st Clifton CC Junior rider was Herbert Antcliff, swiftly making the climb in 6m 34s. And 1st Clifton overall rider was Andrew Jamieson in 6m24s. Paul Muzzy keeps posting sub 7 minute times year after year, taking the V50 1st prize today - Chapeau!

The full results are below, just let me know if any typos / comments.
Enjoy your Autumn / Winter Season, In Cycling,
Claire & Robert
