Members will be saddened to hear of the passing of Harry Taylor, unexpectedly, on Wednesday 25th November 2020 following a heart attack earlier in the week. Harry was a club member for many years and a regular at time trials and club runs. Harry went under the hour for 25 miles on 27.07.02 with a time of 58.53. He also won the club’s award for Most Improved Rider that season.
He got into the spirit of Mallorca training week’s and would often get off the front of a group ride by lapping roundabouts twice claiming it was a way of getting the miles up. He enjoyed the obligatory fancy dress evening, and rued the day he claimed his newest, latest and greatest bike gave him wings in the mountains. This was mentioned to him on many occasions, which he took in great spirit.
Whilst not being an active club member in more recent times, he continued to ride regularly.
Harry will be sadly missed by his wife Mary and his sons Robert and Gary.
A family funeral is being arranged for Friday 4th December. The family have requested no flowers but donations can be sent to research into Parkinson’s Disease.
Ride in Peace Harry.
