For anyone who might be interested, our friends in green from the Peak RT are organising a cyclo cross race on Sunday at the Whitely Woods Guide Centre, Ringinglow.

Dan Cook has asked me if anyone might be able to give a bit of time on Sunday to help out with a spot of marshalling ? If you were going to watch anyway not don a jacket and help out the guys from Peak?

If you can help, email me (Danny) at

Obituary : Malcolm Cross

05 Nov
November 5, 2014

Neil Cross has been in touch today to inform us that his father and long-time Rutland member Malcolm Cross passed away yesterday (4th Nov). Many people especially the older members will know that he had a stroke 7 years ago, but had been living independently since. His health deteriorated recently and he had to stop doing his 15 mile hikes in the peaks last summer. He did take his bike out a few times after his stroke (one-handed and partly one-legged) which only stopped when he failed to mend his puncture and was probably a good idea all round.
Known as Koj to a lot of people Malc was part of the old Thursday night gang along with John Barnsley, Malc Pearce, Malc Elliott, Johnny Bargh, the Pickering brothers and Malc Chattle.

Malcolms’ funeral will be on Monday 17th November at St Timothy’s Church on Slinn Street, Crookes at 2.15 followed by the burial at Crookes Cemetery about 3ish, and then up to the Norfolk Arms at Ringinglow from 4.30pm onwards. Any flowers to John Heath and Son.

To get to the the church follow the Crookes road from Broomhill up the hill to Crookes, past the shops, then turn sharp right onto Western Road, and then first left onto Slinn Street and St Timothy’s is on your left.

It was reported that one our ex-members Barry Crowther passed away on Sunday 2nd November, it is understood that Barry had suffered a heart attack whilst out on his bike near Baslow. Barry was a member member of the Club during the late 90’s and did some fast times on his tandem with Dave Clarkson.
Our thoughts are with his wife Janet and their daughter Joanne.
The funeral will be on Friday 14th November, 3:30pm at Hutcliffe Wood and then afterwards at the White Hart in Greenhill.

For anyone who didn’t see Speed with Guy Martin on Sunday, it’s well worth a watch.

Star of the show is undoubtedly Rutland’s own Pete Goodfellow who was the previous British record holder of the record that Guy Martin is trying to break, the tandem 24 hour record.
