Honorary members

Jimmy Harris and Sadiq Mir were both made honorary members of the club last Thursday at the AGM. Jimmy lives in Condorrat and is Secretary of the West of Scotland Clarion and has been running the Clarion in Scotland since the 1960's. He also organised the Tour de Trossachs TT for many years. Jimmy used to race too, clocking up some superb Best All Rounder times and winning his club's trophy on a number of occasions (23.427mph in 1962 on a fixed!). Jimmy has been really encouraging towards our section and even donated four trophies to our club, so his honorary membership goes someway to say thank you to him.
Due to his work commitments, Sadiq had to stand down as our first president at the AGM. Sadiq started the club last year by beginning a post on calling for West Lothian roadies to get together for group rides. He's been a driving force behind the club and set the ethos of how we behave on our rides: No one gets left behind. On behalf of the club thanks for all your help Sadiq, and look forward to seeing you on the road!
