I'm filled with immense pride as we look back on our 2023 Leaderboard Challenge. It's been a year marked not just by competitive spirit but by the incredible sense of community that defines our club. Every pedal stroke and every climb was a testament to the commitment of our members.

The Challenge Unfolded

Our leaderboard featured a mix of Strava segments, carefully selected to cater to all riding styles – from hill climbs to flat sprints, including:

I am continually amazed by the enthusiasm and dedication shown by our members. Their individual efforts in tackling these segments were voluntary, yet they embraced the challenge with a passion that truly embodies the spirit of our club.

While these segments were not group activities or formal races, the individual efforts of our members were nothing short of remarkable. In line with our values, the club, with support from our friends and sponsors, provided tokens of recognition for exceptional effort. These acknowledgements highlight dedication and personal achievements, rather than just winning.

This year, we introduced gifts and tokens of recognition, not as awards for winning but as symbols of appreciation for the hard work and dedication of our members. Our generous friends and sponsors helped make this possible, and for that, we are incredibly thankful.
