The Bicycle Icycle 70km Bike Ride ~ 1 April 2012

The ride attracted 18 people, twelve of whom were West Surrey riders. These were Peter Hackman, Matt Carolan, Clive Richardson, Helen Juden, Chris Juden, Huw Hitchin, Chris Jeggo, Anne Etherington, Bob McLeod, Chris Boggon, Roger Philo and Mark Waters, the organiser. We also welcomed riders from further afield: Peter Weston & David Funnell (West Sussex); John Beer & Alex Nowicky (SW London); Mike Batchelor (West London) and Denis Crampton (Bracknell). All completed the course, except one, with the first riders home completing the course in 3 hours 55 minutes, which, interestingly, was identical to the two previous years. It’s a fabulously scenic route, if a bit hilly. Fortunately the weather didn’t make our bicycles icy; in fact the sun shone out of a clear, sunny sky, although a couple more degrees up the celsius scale would have gone down well.

Roy Banks

Peter Banks, Roy’s son, writes: Sad news, I’m afraid, about my Dad, Roy, who died last Thursday morning. He had been suffering from vascular dementia and Alzheimer’s for about the last 4 years, and had deteriorated rapidly over the past few weeks. I expect that you will share many fond memories, as I will, of some great cycling that we did together. After a private cremation ceremony in the morning, there will be a memorial service at 2.30 pm on Tuesday 31st January at Christchurch, Virginia Water, followed by light refreshments, and it would be lovely to see you there to share some of these happy memories and to celebrate my Dad’s life.
