2019 Frank Papp Memorial Handicap Details Sat 20th July 12pm

Frank Papp was a club member who passed away in an accident while riding in 2011. Frank was the sort of bloke who made you feel like you'd known him for years, only a few minutes after meeting him and he is missed by all who knew and rode with him. Frank loved riding huge distances training for audax rides and Paris-Brest-Paris, so it's only fitting that our longest and hardest race of the year is held in his memory.
