January 12, 2015

John Coulson has kindly arrangerd a pie and pea supper at the Lees Hall Golf Club on Hemsworth Road (S8 8LL) for Friday 23rd January at 8pm. The cost is a staggering £6 and I’ll need to know final numbers by the Wednesday (21st).
We’ll probably meet at the teacake meet at 6:30 and have a ride first and get there about 8ish for a few beers and some snap.
Let me know ASAP if you’re coming simon@rutland.cc.

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.

Speed with Pete Goodfellow (and Guy Martin)

28 Oct
October 28, 2014

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.

Tumby’s Road Race

11 Jun
June 11, 2014

First and foremost the date has changed from Sunday 10th August to Sunday 3rd August.
Steve has kindly agreed to move our event forward a week so as not to clash with the newly organised Pontefract Grand Prix on the afternoon of the 10th.
With the recent trouble we’ve been having with road race courses in Nottinghamshire Steve is hoping to run Tumby’s Road Race on a larger circuit at Braithwell that is also used for the Out of the Saddle Road Race later in the year.
With the bigger circuit also comes the need for more marshals so I’m asking now rather than a week before the event, if YOU can help Steve out and not leave it to him to rally round his family and friends at the last minute.
This is the second of four events that the Club is promoting this year so please try and do your bit and keep this and other events going for the future of our sport.
It’s a 10 o’clock start and the event is 68 mile so it should be all over by about 1pm.
Steve can be contacted by email, pigeon post or the good old dog and bone, his details have been circulated via email but contact us through this website and we’ll forward your details.

The Sleaford Wheelers Nev Crane Memorial 25 mile TT is once again on the horizon. The date is 20th July.
