The 2020 Hillclimb went ahead thanks to club members who supported it. We were unsure of what would happen in a Covid world but we all persisted and in the end there was a great turnout at Stirling Terrace with lots of smiling faces.
It was a great day thanks to Dylans who did a fantastic job organizing the band and afternoon tea for the poker raffle.
The Sunday Hillclimb went well and finished in good time. What a great day for all. Thanks to all club members, sponsors, the volunteer fire brigade and helpers from other clubs who helped to make this day happen.
A lot of work goes on behind the scenes for a two-day event like this and it is such a relief when it all falls into place. This is a great event and all should be proud for what this does for our community and our club.

Nearly ready to go on the starting line.
But pausing for a chat with Marshal Bruce.
Rider Bruce (no longer Marshal Bruce) and Bob idling on the startline, with Huw ready to change gear.
They're off - a discussion about the next gear follows soon.
Huw makes another gearchange from the sidecar seat as Bob winds on the throttle again.
President Kim, official clipboard in hand, enjoys it all from the sidelines.
Bob to relaxed-looking Huw: ready for the start?
Garry gets his bike off the line quickly.
Not quite so quick off the line, Course Marshal Steve and Firie carrying supplies to volunteers.
Someone who is truly fast off the line, Colin on his 750 Honda.
