KENT CA TREASURER from KCA SECRETARY

To our great regret Gordon Sherwood has decided to step down as Treasurer at this year's AGM. He has handled our finances most capably and will obviously be a hard act to follow. However, don't let Gordon's efficiency deter you if you feel you would like to take on the job. Please let me know. Esther Carpenter


12 Hour distances

Nothing formal but you can see what the Live Distance calculator threw up as riders' distances. Pav Bryan looks to have won with around 268. Tere are 5 riders alls round 250 (Martin Brown, Lee Buckman, Dean Chiddention, Shay Giles and Matthew Scholes) Mark Fairhead (no55) who fell of at Woolpack Inn was at the hall afterward and seemed fine.

You can Download the booklet version of the 2014 Start Sheet that prints double sided here.. There is also a version that prints single sided that can be downloaded here.

Please note that the course has changed slightly and riders will now turn Right at Kingsnorth 2 and then left on the slip road straight to Cloverleaf RAB and the Marsh. The short legs to the Kingsnorth 3 and Orbital RABs have been removed.

Robert Kennison, Medway Velo, has kindly volunteered to organise the second KCA 50 next year. This event is held in memory of Roy Enfield, a member of the Medway Wheelers winning team in the BBAR competition in 1948 and 1949. Ken Joy and Peter Beardsmore were the other two counters, with Beardsmore winning the individual competition in 1948 and Joy in 1949. Ken Joy was the champion for four successive years.

BILL HURLOW MEMORIAL RIDE

John Hunt is organising a Memorial Ride for Bill on Sunday 14th September starting at 10.00am from Hampton Pier, Herne Bay. A social ride of 40 miles to Sandwich and back going via Bill’s house and his workshop. It’s being done on behalf of the Veteran Cycle Club with as many as possible coming on Hurlows. I’ve spoken to Shay Guiles but he will probably be racing but may come. Also spoken to Maurice and Esther. He says they will come on their Hurlow tandem. Ernie Abdella is coming, who used to assemble bikes for Bill.

Contact John at johndehunt@tiscali.co.uk or telephone 07765767200.
