The driving force behind racing at Barnsfield Heath in the early nineties and the Primera bike shop,where his dislike of customers was so endearing! John will be sadly missed, of course by Marion & their three children but also by the local cycling community. John's ashes will be scattered at the top of the 'Col du Vent' in May 2015, in accordance with his wishes.
"My wheels no longer touch the ground,
floating on passionate effort,
a wholehearted singleminded effort
the rhythm of a perfect circle
a pulsing rhythm that rises above the worlds woes"
