Having been a member for over 20-years and, on Sunday, attending the Annual General Meeting of the Manchester & North West Group for the umpteenth time, it occurs to me that little has been mentioned of the time trialling exploits of Macclesfield Wheelers in its events and championships.
Roger Wrenn might almost be classed as our only memorable standard bearer in the Over-40 sphere of time trialling, having set many new personal standards and gained a lot of wins for his 'Best Plus' performances.
However, Mikel Knudsen has also made his mark this season with exceptional success in his Danish 'hour' record ride on the track.
Mindful of the lack of new members joining the association, the Mcr & NW Group will be putting together a message to club secretaries in the foreseeable future striving to promote more interest. There is a national website with facilities for groups such as ours to contribute details of its Age Records and this remains to be maximised.
