Happy 90th Birthday to Ron Osborne

Many happy returns to our oldest member and long-time stalwart of FCCC, Ron Osborne (right in the pic), who celebrated his 90th birthday on Friday 31 August 2018.

Ron joined us way back from the Kingston Phoenix CC along with Chris Thain (sadly no longer with us) and Ron Taylor who fondly remembers riding a tandem 30 mile race with him many years ago where they won a medal. Maybe not the most famous ever “Two Ronnies” but probably so on a tandem.

Ron continues to give up his time to support the club in his role as honorary auditor and was the club secretary for several years but is probably better known for his long stint, until just a couple of years ago, as a timekeeper in club, local open events and National Championships time trials.

To mark the occasion, the club bought Ron a book on the history of cycling, and in the photo you can see club president Dick Poole presenting it to Ron.

We wish Ron a very happy birthday and many more to come!
