14. BDCA.

Please note that, as we missed the subscription dead line by 2 days, we are no longer a member club of the BDCA. It seems sad that, after over 30 years of promoting events for the BDCA, the first year we did not promote, we are thrown out for a (minor) infringement. Where are our friends?

This means that only open BDCA events may be ridden.

One of our members is riding in aid of Struan Kerr-Lidell. Struan, a former pupil of Lady Manners School, Bakwell, broke his neck when the scrum collapsed in a university rugby game. His sister, Kirsty, used to be a member of the club, coming to the North Yorks Moors with us.
The ride is from Derbyshire to Edinburgh, timed to coincide with the International at Murryfield. Forms are in the clubroom.

Aiden World Champion.
