Dick Poole’s Palmares

Dick Poole, long time President and a member of the club since 1969 has one very famous achievement to his name when in 1965 he became the first person to break 48 hours for Lands End to John O’Groats (“LEJOG”).

Follow this link for full details of this great achievement.

An amazing feat as I’m sure fellow more leisurely “Lejoggers” will readily attest to.

Dick has also recently compiled a summary of his racing career from his little black book, an inspiring account of his own longevity and commitment to the sport of cycling.
