Peter Sandy Memorial Road Race – Sunday 30 June 2019

Somerset Road Club are proud to be presenting the second Peter Sandy Memorial Road Race on Sunday 30 June 2019.

Entry can be made online through British Cycling, which contains more details on the event.

This 70 mile event will be run on 10 laps of the SW136 Nicholashayne Course. This is a great course on the Devon / Somerset border, with the HQ in Uffculme. The course takes in a mix of technical lanes, fast downhills and the long White Ball climb out of Somerset on the A38. This National B event will be open to E/1/2/3 licence riders.


As always we require helpers to enable us to continue to run and establish this years road race. Without the help of club members we would be unable to run this event. If you are able to assist in any way, please message our club Chair Adrian Reynolds or reply to our Facebook Group post requesting help.

Don’t worry if you have never taken part before you will be given support for the role and it will be a good day and is usually good fun. BBQ post race is in the pipeline too.

Peter Sandy passed away at the age of 87, on 13 June 2017. He was president of Somerset Road Club for many years, having revived the struggling club 40 years ago.

A popular figure, he was a successful racer in the South West and beyond. He had top six finishes in almost 100 races between 1977 and 1987.

Peter was an inspiration to so many riders throughout the years, both young and old. He will be sadly missed for his passion for cycling and the many racing stories that he told at our cafe stops.
