Thanks to the volunteers (Brian, Ken, Risdale family, Shelly and Lucy) who made it possible!

First Binbrook TT of year a toughie!

8c and  NE wind gusting to 50 creating cross winds against going out and no help coming back made for a toughie! 12 brave souls turned out and 11 finished with an incredible (given circumstances) best time of 56 minutes! Our (Ken & Martin) call for volunteers garnered  Shelly as turn marshal having to travel around 200km total  putting some of us to shame right!!

Good Friday Road Race 2017

Little cool in the early am but turned out to be a great day for the 475 riders who turned out! We had a full complement of marshals (16) and caravan cars/trucks. Chris was there with his awesome coffee and Dirty South to replace all these calories burned up!

Club members Steve McKee took 2nd in the M1 and Sarah Rasmussen  took gold in the elite 1/2 women! Other club riders seen  Mark DeKonig came in 18th in M3, Chris Rowley came in 30th in E1/2 and Garnett Abbey 29th in M1.

Another successful GF event with round of applause for our club President and race organizer Marc Risdale (& family!).

New Photo Album Set Up

We have moved our photo albums from Picasa(Google+) to ZenFolio a much more interactive site. The Link is on the Photo page http://hamiltoncycling.com/photos/

We are retaining the Picasa links for a little while but ZenFolio allows you to download your favourite photos  (your starring moments!) and even buy prints in a wide variety of forms. HCC adds no mark up nor photographer Martin Reid (for now).

Enjoy the event slide shows!
