It was hill climb time on Sunday and time to see if all our preparations had worked. Being the first time I had organised an event there was more than a little bit of trepidation! I needn’t have worried at all, with all the help and […]
A very windy night produced some surprisingly good times on Wednesday. Regulars will know that a strong wind directly behind on Penny’s Lane is a good sign as you get a 2 mile kick start followed by mostly cross winds, with very little head wind. We had a few first time riders and all went […]
Nice day for a hill climb. The sun was out, the wind was light, and riders gathered early, eager to sign on and get prepared for the ride. Even from the start riders, it looked to be a reasonably fast day, and there was an air of competitive spirit that saw the faster riders battle […]
Thanks must go out to all who helped in organising and running this year, and to all riders who enjoyed a clear and fast day this time round! Only 11 riders came off the start line before rider 12, Peter Tadros set the bar very high with a 20:00.2 ride (which gave him the Vets […]

What a day! A fantastic and fast event this year! Thanks must go out to all who helped in organising and running this year, and to the riders who came out and made some blistering times on a day that saw as near perfect conditions as you can get on the ‘Cat’! It did look […]

I was pleased to finish 22 seconds quicker than last season and I\’m already looking forward to next week\’s event up the much steeper Purin Den climb in the Lomond Hills. […]
Sunday 23rd September 2012 For the final time from me, before I hand over to Derek, I would like to thank the timekeepers (Jimmy and Tony) and the members of the Weaver Valley CC who have helped to develop this event over the years. An event is nothing without its riders and I would like […]
Report by Paul Lawson. This weeks Fife Cycling Association event (and FCA members HC Championship) was moved from Purrin Den because of the poor road surface to another climb in the Lomond Hills area. The Craigmeads hill climb was even tougher than last weeks 1.4 mile haul up the Cleish Hills. Measuring 1.7 miles in […]
