NRC Awards Night at The Bowler’s Arms

Over sixty Club members returned to The Bowler’s Arms on 12 March 2022 for our Spring Social, and an evening of celebration, conversation and curry.

It was a great opportunity to catch up, with some of our latest recruits coming along to meet other members and find out more about what is going on in the club.

During the evening we were delighted to celebrate the achievements of our 2021 Club Trophy winners, along with some special club ride awards, all presented by Club President Bob Lyle.

During 2021 there were numerous PBs, lifetime bests, new club records and medals a plenty. Many riders can feel very satisfied with their season and their performances.

Unfortunately Claire Emons, Wei Tsung Yau, Marion Templeman, Cliff Voller, Tim Cartwright, Peter Fuell and Ian Lakey were unable to join us on the night but you can read about their achievements here
