John Wilson

We are very sorry to annouce that John Wilson sadly passed away on Wednesday 20th July.

John "pathfinder" Wilson was a stalwart of our club and his support was invaluable. He was Competitions Secretary for 30 years and the Sunday club run could rely on him come rain, wind or shine.

He participated in time trials, holding many team and individual records for 10, 25 and 30 mile records, representing the Maldon all over the country. An accomplished veteran road racer until recently.

He loved club tours and was a generous friend and mentor. Let's not forget his role as Minute Man to Alex Dowsett!

In fact John loved cycling and was sorely missed when he moved up north to be near his family .

His sudden death while cycling was, we're sure, the way he would have wished.

We shall miss him terribly.
