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.
