Bob Melrose Memorial Ride

bob melrose

In February this year we were all shocked by Bob Melrose's sudden passing after a short illness.

Many members will have known Bob as the person who organised the Saturday and Thursday (TOGs) club rides and was often the first person prospective new members met when joining a club ride for the first time.

He was without doubt a most popular member within the club, a past Club Person of the Year and Captain and is sadly missed. It is therefore fitting to mark his passing the club will be organising a Memorial Ride to the Hearth at Horsley on Saturday 15th July. Club members will be able to share over a buffet our happy memories of Bob and favourite stories (long ones cut short of course), and Bob's wife Ann will be joining us on the day too

To allow as many club members as possible to attend if they wish, there will be two starting points for the ride:

  • The main ride will depart at 10am from Samm's Café in Ponteland, riding in organised led groups.
  • The youth club ride will depart following Go-Ride coaching (approx. 10 - 10.15am) from Thorneyford Farm.

We can only accommodate 80 people so places will be on a first come first served basis.

To book your place, please login to the website and then click here.

The cost is £5 per person, and your place will only be reserved once payment had been received. The deadline for bookings (and payment) is Saturday 8th July, although spaces may well have sold out before then!

If you require any further information do not hesitate to contact Austin Wilcock (07904744162)
