Well that was 2017 … done and dusted! It’s a new year and we would like to wish all our members HAPPY NEW YEAR!
We hope everyone had a wonderful festive season, that you are all well rested and ready to face the challenges that the New Year brings.
2018 has started off on a very sad note. Shaun Holt, a long standing member of Club100, passed away on Sunday, 7th January due to illness. Shaun was 56years old. A lot of members will remember Shaun riding up front at the club rides. He also took part in a number of TDF Tours in the early 2000's and participated in most of the Panorama tours including 2017, after which he developed a lung infection. Shaun’s funeral will be held at 12 noon on Friday 12 January at the Fourway's Memorial Park. Members are welcome to attend.
On a lighter note, our official Club rides resume this weekend with the roadies departing from the Mugg & Bean Broadacres at 06h30. A slower ladies ride as well as the Beginners will depart from the Cullinary Equipment Company on Saturday at 06h45. The mountain bike rides also start up again this weekend with Richard Ferrer taking the Northern Farm ride at 07h00 and Sean Gallick, better known as The Fat Boy, will be marshaling the Sunday MTB ride from the M&B Woodmead at 06h00.
Just a reminder that as a member of Club100 you get free access to Northern Farm. All you need is a Club100 membership card and to be in your Club kit. Membership cards are available from the office. Please contact me if you need one.
