On Sunday (21st November), Royston Cycling Club held a ride in respect of a former member John Meadows (72) who recently passed away. John was a well known resident within Royston who had lived in the town for 42 years.
John was an extremely passionate cyclist and had been a member of the club from when it first formed in 2013. Fellow rider and Club Secretary, James Murphy, said: “John was extremely helpful and supportive of the club right from the start. At the Club’s initial meeting he gave the group much advice and ever since then he has been a great asset to the club. He will be remembered as a cyclist who always gave encouragement to other riders and was particularly supportive of new members.”
As well as being a regular member of the Royston Cycling Club he was often cycled with a group of riders from Meldreth and also used to be a member of Ashwell Cycling Club. He enjoyed going on vintage rides and was a campaigner for the A10 cycle path between Royston and Cambridge.
For anyone who would like to donate to John’s chosen charities, they are Mesothelioma UK and also the Royal Papworth Hospital Charity, where he had recently been treated for his cancer.
