David Hendy – President

How long have you been cycling for? This time around seven years ago; centuries ago I used to race as a teenager with the Canberra Amateur Cycling Club How long have you been a member of HCC for? Since 2011 Greatest cycling achievement/memory: Completing the three ascents of Mt Ventoux in one day (137 km, 4,428 metres of climbing in 9 hours) and becoming the 16th Australian member of the Club Des Cingles Du Mont Ventoux (roughly translates to Club of Mount Ventoux Screwballs). When I qualified, there were over 4,000 members. Second to that, is climbing the various passes in the Dolomites, completing and surviving the Nova Collie Gran Fondo all with a great bunch of HCC / Melbourne mates; What do you enjoy doing when you’re not in the saddle? Going to theatre and shows, eating out. Hang on, eating comes first!

How long have you been cycling for? Since I was about 5 when I crashed into a brick wall after my older sister let me have a go of her bike. This might explain a lot. ( Over 5 decades ) How long have you been a member of HCC for? About 6 years Greatest cycling achievement/memory: Achievement: Placing 5th in the Grandads Group at the 2014 Tour or Bright. Memory: Riding some of the famous Belgian and Northern French climbs such as the Cote de la Redoute, Koppenberg and Taaienberg in the company of Phil Anderson back in 2010. What do you enjoy doing when you’re not in the saddle? Trying to master the 7 modes on a $100 guitar- it makes animals run for cover at the sound I produce.

Louise Hogan – Secretary

How long have you been cycling for? I got my first bike at the age of 6, and have ridden various bikes on and off most of my life, more consistently since getting my first road bike 5 years ago. How long have you been a member of HCC for? 3 years Greatest cycling achievement/memory: My earliest and fondest cycling memory is getting pushed along by dad on my first bike, and when he let go, I didn’t fall off! More recently, learning about the thrill of racing (and surviving) for the first time in the Femme Vitesse Novice series, Summer of 12/13, with a bunch of other new Hawthorn women members. It was only through their encouragement and support that got me hooked on racing, something I never dreamed I’d be doing! What do you enjoy doing when you’re not in the saddle? Escaping the city to the coast, to spend time with family and friends, with a G&T in hand.
