South West England, Cyril Slocombe.

Cyril took over the running of the Bristol Thursday “Old Time Cyclists” at a time when there were between 15 & 20 participants. Under his excellent stewardship the numbers have risen to an average of 50-plus.

2005 has not been a particularly good one health wise for Cyril but he has continued unfailingly to produce the rides programme. He has seldom missed a ride and if he has felt unable to lead he has found a volunteer to take his place.

He is instrumental in increasing the public awareness of cycling among a group of people who have never before considered the use of a cycle as a means of pleasure and transport.
