On Saturday 30 September 2017, there will be a memorial ride to remember and honour Ian Bashford, who was tragically killed in September 2016 while competing in the Duo Normand. The ride will leave Corkscrew at 10am and head - via Jackass Lane, Downe, the Shampan, Knockholt, Halstead, Pol Hill and the Filston rollers, to the Battle of Britain cafe in Shoreham, where we will aim to arrive at about 11.30. At the cafe, a memorial plaque to Ian will be unveiled and there will also be refreshments. Beverly Bashford - Ian's widow - has very kindly agreed to unveil the plaque. All club members are invited to join the ride and we will also be advising other clubs whose riders may wish to remember Ian. Partners, or others who do not wish to ride, are welcome to make their own way to the cafe. Club members are requested to wear club kit. It would be helpful if club members confirmed their attendance, on the forum or via the What's App group, so we can give the cafe an idea of numbers to expect.
