Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

I'm sorry to announce that John Woodburn passed away in his sleep on Good Friday around 11am.   John was a member of the Maidenhead & District Cycle club for a number of years and a charactor of the old school style of cycling, Road Racing and Time Trialing for many years.  A summay of some of his cycling achievements can be found at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Woodburn_(cyclist) and http://www.pezcyclingnews.com/features/john-woodburn-rip/#.WPZXxot4WEc

John was an example of how you can still cycle pretty competatively into your 70's, when he was still able to ride 10tt in 22min and 25tt in under 1 hour.
