The annual Cycle Seahaven awards fall into two categories. Those that are awarded by the Ride Leaders and those that are awarded by the Committee.
The Ride Leader awards for this year go to:
Female Road – Carol Bryant. Carol started cycling with the tourers in the autumn of 2018 and is now one of Cycle Seahaven’s keenest cyclists. Carol rides both MTB and road bikes and recently became a ride leader. She has been working hard to try and encourage more integration between the two groups.
Male Road – Dave Sutton. Dave is very active in arranging touring rides and is always willing to help others. He has taken touring rides in new directions such as off-road touring and Audax events.
Female MTB – Kate Carver. Kate has tirelessly supported the ladies rides and is the linchpin for pub/social rides. She’s out in all weathers and her cheery disposition and the occasional song helps motivate those around her.
Male MTB – For the first time ever there was a three-way tie. The winners were:
Dan Shepard. Dan has shown remarkable grit and determination in improving his riding skills and stamina since joining the club. He trained hard for the South Downs Way event last year and completed 2650 miles in 9 months.
Clive Williams. Clive is always on his bike trying to develop new skills. He has gone from being a beginner, who struggled to ride over tree roots, to popping jumps over tabletops at Bike Park Wales.
Charlie Helm. Charlie’s 13 years of age. He completed London to Brighton last year (including Ditchling Hill), to raise money for the MEN2B charity. He’s promoted the club and the charity on local radio and is now arranging a Brighton to Paris charity ride.
The Committee Cups went to:
Donna and Lee Turner for their help and support to the committee last year. They’ve been actively engaged in transporting in Dr Bike equipment and supporting the events. They also helped with social events and have been a real asset to the club. Since the award both of joined the committee.
Cycle Seahaven members raised £1000 last year making a grand total of £3100 in the last two years.
Denis Bass retired from the committee this year after over a decade of service to the club. He’s been Club Secretary and more recently the club’s Treasurer and Membership Secretary. Both he and his wife Sharon, have dedicated a lot of time to the club. We are very grateful to them both and hope to see them on a bike or future social events. Thank you very much for everything you’ve done. From all of us at Cycle Seahaven
