Please note this is not a start sheet.

This is an old school turn up, pay and ride event. Signing-on will take plane at the bottom of Newnham prior to the start.

Please register your interest in riding for Rugby RCC by selecting the next available slot. I hope the more interest we get, the more fellow competitors will be encouraged to join in the fun 😉

Even if you don’t relish the prospect of competing, do come on the day and offer your voice to encourage those brave/foolish soles attempting the hill.
