What we are planning or have been up to lately.

This Saturday – Road run

This will be approx 66 miles at a speed of 12-14mph – meet 9am Abbey Terrace, I will meet everyone at the Beckford stores 9:30.

The HONC pictures

A big thank you to Sussex Sport Photography for another year of taking pictures of all the HONC riders. The official ride photos are now available in an online gallery at the Sussex Sport Photography website.

 

HONC 2015 – a big thank you

To our volunteers – A huge thank you from all of us on the organising committee for your help in running the HONC yesterday & in the days leading up to it. Over 70 WCC club members volunteered and I think we found jobs for everyone – if we didn’t, thank you anyway for offering. We literally couldn’t do it without you!
To our riders – Thank you all for another great day in the Cotswolds. We had about 1200 riders, including over 40 of our own club members, and had great feedback from everyone on the day & also via email & twitter. It really does make all the hard work worth while!
A full event report will be on the WCC site soon

HONC 2015

The time has finally arrived! Good luck to everyone taking part in the Hell of the North Cotswolds today!

Is everyone ready for HONC•31?

It is hard to believe that the 2015 HONC is here. Tomorrow morning will see the riders setting off into the Cotswolds for what we hope will be a great days riding. Lets hope the sun shine keeps up!

Below is a sneak peek at this years T-Shirt that has been made for the event, that will be available on the day.

 

HONC – alternative road run

As there is no scheduled run on Sunday due to the HONC, Trevor McGill has offered to lead a ride starting from Winchcombe School at 9:15am

This will give the  helpers an opportunity to have ride and maybe see something of the event too.

This is what Trevor proposes:

” The ride will be approx 35-40 miles taking us up Corndean Lane around the back to Cotswold Farm Park cafe ( HONC passes the Farm Park) or push on to Broadway Tower cafe, then down fish hill and back home.”

Hell of the North Cotswolds 2015 event information

Due to a technical issue with the HONC website we have set up a temporary page on the WCC site. Please click here for event information. Hopefully we will have the HONC website updated soon.
