A drizzly start and a forecast of heavy rain to come didn’t deter 7 riders from entering the club’s Autumn Hill Climb on Sunday 13th October, including a new member riding in trainers and flat pedals who came over to support and decided to give it a go.

Justin Menhennet won convincingly with a time of 2:28, and having also won the spring HC in February, he takes the Hill Climb Trophy. A small group of supporters rode over from North Baddesley to provide much needed encouragement, while Justin brought his own support, pictured below.
