November Climbing Challenge

The November Climbing Challenge to find a Kapiti Cycling Club climbing legend certainly produced some outstanding times, the GOAT (for November at least) was “Fast Man” Antony Nalder tearing up the tarmac on the Mangatuks, Aka’s and Hadfield. Although consistently in second place, Mike Proudfoot proved his climbing mettle with record times for a master’s athlete up all three climbs proving age is no barrier.

The women’s field although depleted was equally impressive with quick times over the three climbs.

A special mention to Adrian and Ted for tackling all three climbs on the tandem, no mean feat considering Ted probably did all the work !!

The climb leaders will be recognised at the KCC AGM/Awards night. Many congratulations to the participants, it is the taking part that makes a club successful.
