As well as his role as secretary of the Leicestershire and Rutland District Association, Ray is often the public face of the CTC in Leicestershire dealing with the press and liaising with local authorities.
He coordinates a rural rides program in conjunction with several district councils and is the secretary of a road safety committee. He is an active Right to Ride member and takes a close interest in issues relating to the East Midlands Airport.
The successful Beaumanor Rally camping weekend in May, now in its fourth year, is an excellent opportunity for cyclists in the region to meet each other. Ray organises this event most effectively in his self-effacing and quiet way.
