Ride bikes. Have fun. Feel good.

Evening Series – Hill Climb

The Evening Series is sadly over but what a fantastic summer it has been with plenty of riders from a variety of clubs joining us. In particular, many thanks to our friends from Oxted CC.

It is also a moment to celebrate the contribution made by Chris Daniels who has been timekeeping for East Grinstead CC for more than 30 years. Dear Chris, we thank you for your massive contribution to the club.

Tonight the Hill Climb was fiercely contested with 7 riders dipping below the six minute barrier – chapeau !

Great effort also from our senior members John G, Peter B and John H.

Well done to Tom for the win and a PB.
