5 Minute Forum 11th May
- Members were reminded of 75th Anniversary cycle ride at Gravesend Cyclopark on 30th June, 10.30am to 1.00pm, followed by lunch.
- Bob Varney spoke with great enthusiasm about how he became involved in setting up and running a women’s racing team. Ably supported by two of his team, Abi van Twisk and Jen George (came 7th in the TdY chasing down Lizzie Armitstead). They are now the best British womens team, and will be taking part in the ToB; have been invited to California and the Tour of Flanders. Promised to be our woman in the peleton.
- A cheque was presented to John Barclay to support his excellent work with the cycling teams he takes to Europe.
- We were encouraged to “invest” so as to win the Club’s TdF sweepstake!
- Doug Collins encouraged members to marshall at the Victor Berlemont Trophy Road Race on 28th August.
