British Cycling Says 'Thank You' To 10 Year Clubs15/11/2007 News
In the intervening ten years, British Cycling has been transformed into a world-beating governing body: it has produced increased participation at all levels; grown membership to its highest level in 40 years; enjoyed unprecedented success on the international competitive scene; and launched a comprehensive range of programmes dedicated to the development of the sport and, its infrastructure.
British Cycling’ Chief Executive Peter King, said: “Although the clubs involved now return to the ‘normal’ cycle of annual affiliation fees, British Cycling would like to thank them for their massive contribution to the sport. They gave the organisation the support and the confidence upon which the far from “normal” developments of the last 10 years have been built. At a time when we were under unprecedented scrutiny and when we needed our friends in the sport more than ever, they were prepared to back us. On behalf of British Cycling, I’d like to offer them our sincere thanks.”
The fifteen clubs involved in the 10 year affiliation were:
Ashfield RC, BEC Cycling Club, Birdwell Wheelers, Cheltenham & County CC, Derby Mercury RC, Drighlington BC, Hastings & St Leonards CC, Liverpool Mercury, New Brighton CC, North Hampshire RC, Rockingham Forest Wheelers, Southend Wheelers, Team Welwyn, Wolverhampton Wheelers & Woolwich CC.
