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? 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.
