In my opinion, yesterday provided the very best example of what it means to be involved in a Club such as West Surrey, with club members working together to put on a truly exceptional event. The Tour of the Hills is our major event of the year, and a few weeks before the event there were a few challenges to overcome. However, true club spirit prevailed, and the combined work of very many people enabled the Club to put on an event of which we can all be proud. The feedback from entrants was consistently positive, not to say effusive, with one seasoned campaigner saying that it was the best Audax event that he had ever experienced.
Don Gray was the mainstay and worked through the year, but thanks go to all those who helped in so many ways, particularly with the catering and the marshalling, both of which were considered to be quite exceptional. I will not name names, but simply say, thank you all.
