If ever a club event lived up to it's name this is it. A 31 mile season opener time trial on the Whitwell circuit ridden in March at a time when most folk are still cranking up the central heating. Traditionally freezing, windy or wet, club members try their hand at three circuits of this challenging sporting course. From the start just outside Codicote, a quick dive out onto the Codicote to Hitchin main road and a 5 mile rolling descent followed by a sharp left and demanding 2 mile climb up to the summit of St Paul's Warden, followed by a 40mph descent back down to Whitwell and then back along the valley road to the start with a series of 2 sharp little climbs in between. The Hard Riders is a Seabird Trophy event - points go to the season long accumulator.
