Berkhamsted Cycling Club have retained the Harp Hilly Hundred Trophy for a fourth consecutive year!
The Harp Hilly is an annual 100 km reliability ride (that’s an organised ride but with no refueling stations or mechanical support) that takes in many of the well known hills in the area. The event is brilliantly organised by our neighbours, Harp Road Club, who always put on a fantastic spread at the the Hemel clubhouse. It was another neighbouring club however, namely Verulam CC from St. Albans, who were determined to loosen our grip on the title this year, fielding an impressive 45 members themselves. But with 51 riders completing the 100 km circuit, BCC again took the honours though.
Huge congratulations on behalf of the club to everyone who took part in the ride and of course to those who managed to complete the grueling course. Thanks also to Mike Plowman on his efforts in making sure we filled all our places to guarantee the win!
