    1. Any members fancy a trip to the Gent 6 day in Late November 2013? Let Dunc know. Plan to get Ferry over, then cycle the 60 ish miles there. Will probably be a 4 day trip.


    1. SCCC Hill Climb Champs – Planned a new design to the hill club champs. Instead of 1 hill climb on the Cat & fiddle in August we plan to make this an all-rounder style hill climb.

There will be 3 climbs all done on one day, probably as part of a clubrun in September. The champion will be the one with the accumulative fastest time over the 3 climbs. A rider can ride 1 or all of them, but the champion will be from all 3 climbs. There will be a classic short sharp climb, a general peak district mile(ish) climb, then a generally faster hill. This will suit all types of climbers. The choice for 2013 will be……

1) The Cobbled Climb out of Bollington

2) The Brickworks

3) Derbyshire bridge

Dunc to sort exact start / finish places & date & time
