Welcome to your weekly club newsletter.

  1. Sad News: We heard today of the passing of Margaret Hill. Margaret was a long-time club member, and won many club trophies through the 1980s and 90s. You may well have seen her attending the Uphill/Downhill, the trophy for which was presented in memory of her late husband David. We named the women’s road race in Margaret’s honour.
  2. Ewan’s Strava Monthly Segment Update: Well done to June’s two fastest times: Nick Cox and Katherine Brand. Lachlan McLucas 1 second behind. 23 members put in times – another returning legend John Bailey with the fastest versus expected. Seems a long time ago that Chris Adams was the first ascender. Special mention also to Ellie Ulrich who Strava reported a 178 avg HR. Justin Desyllas has kindly chosen July’s segment, Scotland Lane – https://www.strava.com/segments/9335452
