Birdwell Wheelers Annual Prize Dinner was held at The Edmunds Arms Worsbrough last Saturday, when the club welcomed back ex-member Dan Taylor to present the prizes.
The two major prize winners were Trevor Mayne and Marc Peasegood.
Mayne won three of the major trophies – the Derrick Ogden Cup, Roadman of the Year Cup and the Best All Rounder Cup – as well as the club trophies the Wombwell Cup, the Hoyland Nether Cup and the Minto Cup.
The evening was also a celebration of club President Christine Minto’s 60 years of membership. Christine (pictured) joined the club as an 18 year old in 1959 and rapidly showed her prowess at time trialling. In 1969 she gained the women’s 24 hour competition record cycling 427.86 miles, a record which stood until 1983.
This Sunday’s ride is a flat 50 mile loop to Snaith. Meet at Brewers Fayre Wombwell at 9:15am. Visitors are welcome.
