I haven't been here for a long time now, but just a quick post to say Thank you to people like Phil Bixby who, had the confidence to allow me to drive as a rookie in my first road races many years ago.

I have now driven on the Tour de Yorkshire, Otley Road Races and the Womens Tour of Britain 2018, I was down to drive the Mens Tour this year but had to pull out following Spinal Surgery mid year. Today I received an invite to drive Comms on the World Champs next September from British Cycling and have Otley Town Centre, The Womens and Mens Tours of Britain already booked for next year.

Very disappointing to see the collapse of events across North Yorkshire, but im sure it could be rekindled, just thought I would let people know how far you can get just by getting involved at grass roots level :-)

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Melly

Well done in getting these high profile gigs Simon.

We really appreciated the time you gave to volunteering with Clifton back then and perhaps your story can be further expanded and used to encourage Members to volunteer next season.

An article on the new website, maybe.
