Obituary – Tony Butterworth

November 9, 2021

It is with great sadness that another one of our older members has passed away. Tony Butterworth who of course had his shop on Catchbar Lane and was known by everyone died peacefully in hospital at the weekend.

Tony leaves behind his wife Sue and their son and daughter Oliver and Kate.

Our thoughts and prayers are with them at this sad time.

Tony’s funeral took place on Wednesday 17th November at Hutcliffe Wood Crematorium and was just for family.

A few of Tony’s friends did follow the hearse on their bikes from Tony’s home in Dronfield to the crematorium as a show of respect.

30 Dec
December 30, 2020

Below is the link to the official Facebook Page of hill climbing’s biggest open secret: The 2021 Cycling Time Trials National Hill Climb Championships.
This is a collaboration of organisers from local clubs including: myHill Cycling and Rutland CC as well as expert volunteers from Sheffrec CC and Lifting Gear Products/Cycles in Motion.
We are proud to announce that – for the first time in 44 years – the venue for this event will be the ‘home of hill climbing’: the leg shattering; VO2 busting; cadence crumbling Winnats Pass.
We are indebted to Castleton Parish Council for considering and allowing this esteemed event to once again be battled out on one of the UK’s most imposing climbs.
The event will take place on 31st October 2021. More information on the event and qualification criteria to follow (because we are expecting a lot of entries) … but in the meantime please like, share and follow.

With low attendance at the recent monthly meetings we decided at the AGM to have bi-monthly meetings this year at the University Arms and on the alternative Fridays we would arrange a ride out somewhere and have a few beers and an informal meeting.

The first ‘alternative Club meeting’ is set for Friday 6th March at the Norfolk Arms, Ringinglow.

I received news from Paul Morris last week that John ‘Jock’ Caldwell passed away just before Christmas. Not many will remember Jock but he was an active member of the Club along with his wife Betty during the 1950’s / 60’s / 70’s. I’m a little late with this post but his funeral was at Willerby on 2nd January near where he lived in Barton on Humber. I’ll send a card to Betty from the Club but if anyone else wishes to get in touch then please give me a shout and I’ll let you have her address.
