Just an update on this year’s Border Ride. With theAGM done and dusted planning is well underway for what we hope will be thebiggest and best Border Ride yet. And as we all know, the next five months willfly by. We’ll be trying for fortnightly updates and our first is the excitingnews that the committee has secured Blair Stockwell, MBE, as our guest speakerfor this year’s annual dinner.
Blair’s accomplishments include representing New Zealand atthe Munich Olympics, 1972 and four Commonwealth Games 1970, 1974, 1978, 1982.He has won over twenty NZ Cycling championships and was awarded an MBE forservices to NZ cycling in 1984.
Blair said he was looking forward to meeting up with SteveCarson again. “I remember the first time I met Steve at the Barkly Challenge inMount Isa a few years ago,” he said. “Absolutely bloody useless on a bike butsmashed the peloton Sunday night at the Irish”.
So, pencil in Thursday the 31st of July for dinnerand Saturday August the 2nd for the ride and don’t forget, if you have any ideas for the weekend please feel free to getin contact.
It’s your ride as much as ours.
