Vale Mick Rawlins

We received very sad news today that HPRW member Mick Rawlins lost his battle with cancer this morning.
Our thoughts are with his wife Corinne and his family.
Here's a great shot to remember Mick by courtesy of Tony Russell from Wolves Den bikestore.

James Eckersley Donates Bike to Juniors

James Eckersley has very kindly donated a beautiful steel framed Ken Evans bike, equipped with a new ultegra groupset compliments of Jim Collins from Aspley Bike Hub, one of our club sponsors. I believe the bike belonged to James' son - I will get the full story next week. It's a 50cm frame setup with a 6m rollout with no lockout so is ready for open racing.
James is a HPRW life member, joining in 1953, serving the club as president and many other roles, has a swag of state medals, and has ridden well over 20 Challenge 25 rides.
Jim Collins is a grumpy old bloke who works in a bikeshop :) Just kidding, Jim does a heap of work to support the club and especially our juniors.
Note our has club van has received a freshen up with decals provided courtesy of Brian McCarthy and his crew.
