Meet the irrepressible Heatons heroine, Hilda Fox!


At 92 years of age this amazing lady, who raced against the famous cyclist Beryl Burton OBE, is still a member of the Manchester Ladies Cycling Club. She raced for many, many years – her success are listed on Stockport Clarion’s ‘Time Trial’ records too! She puts many of us to shame as she tootles around the streets of The Heatons! But be aware, note the video camera on her helmet, so allow plenty of room when you pass her or you’ll be in trouble!

This photo was taken when Hilda was interviewed for the ‘Lorraine’ TV programme a few years ago, about the long-term health benefits of cycling. She’s certainly a great advocate for the sport.
