CYCLING MEMORABILIA FOR FREE

I have a number of VHS Videos of recorded cycle races T D France Classics etc about 140 in total. Also a number of Pro Cycling magazines in pristine condition. I need to clear them and am loathe to take them to the tip and hope they would be of interest to cycling fans. I would be most grateful if you could advise your clubs of them.They can be collected from my home or I would be happy to deliver them free of charge.

John Smith, West Kent RC

Sadly, John Smith, West Kent RC. died, peacefully, on Sunday, May 7th.

Living at Biddenden he was ideally placed for marshalling duties and for years he was a great support at KCA events.
