Phil Hampton Memorial Ride

Phil Hampton was a member of CTC North Hampshire. He was an electrical engineer who had given up full-time work to make time to cycle more than 8,000 miles a year. In June 2002 he was returning from an Audax event to his home in Farnborough, Hampshire, when he was struck from behind by a 20-ton lorry. The accident happened just outside Petersfield on the A3 trunk road. The lorry driver was later convicted of causing death by dangerous driving and sentenced to two years in jail.

This ride is an annual event organised by CTC North Hampshire in memory of Phil. All the entry fees are donated to the CTC’s Cyclists’ Defence Fund, which was set up in 2001 by the CTC to help cyclists who may be innocent victims of road crashes.
