Glenn Longland signed the Pedal Club Golden Book at The Pedal Club Lunch in March and Joanne Simpson signed it on behalf of her father when she attended the lunch as the speaker and guest of the Club in September.
The club enjoyed a club ride at the Cyclopark on 23rd February in gale force winds.

During the year Cecil Hambelton became a full member, Chris Kelly, James Spackman and James Leach became social members and Andy Storey, Graham Temple and Andy Cook became country members. Barry Clarke resigned from the club.
It is with much sadness that we have to report the following deaths of members during the year, viz. Brian Stout and Peter Ryalls.
