The club’s Open Hill Climb takes place on Sunday 20th on Well Hill Road up to the finish at Green Moor. The first rider is off at 17:01.

Due to the restrictions on maximum gatherings of 6 people the club have currently suspended their Sunday club rides. These will resume when government guidelines allow.
