Nowadays we organise activities for cyclists of all abilities in Hertford and the surrounding area.

NRCC Memorial 25 2023

NRCC Memorial 25 2023

Fifteen North Road entrants, fast times and intense competition on a day of a cold wind and clouds.

Last year's winners did it again: Rob Walker (WardPerformanceUK) smashed his own course record and Lauren Creamer came in only just outside the hour to take the Ladies prize.

Bryan Holland, on a road bike, was fastest North Roader in 1:05:03 with John Saysell, John McDowell and Brian Evans all close behind, while the hotly tipped Chris Symonds suffered a puncture after one lap.
