We are very sad to report the recent passing of Jim Court, a Vice President of the Wheelers.
Jim originally came to cycling via the Wolverhampton section of the CTC (Cyclists Touring Club - now known as Cycling UK) where he met his wife Barbara. As a young man he joined the Wheelers and enjoyed Cyclo-Cross in particular. The love of this 'off road' discipline stayed in his blood throughout his life, when he became a Nationally recognised official. He would be seen across the country at many of the major events - quietly working away in the background to ensure an accurate set of results. Jim always wore a smile and was instrumental in giving a very generous helping hand to many young Wheelers...
So it is, with a heavy heart that we say farewell to Jim, but his cherished memory will live on in those who knew him.
Our deepest sympathy goes to Barbara and the family at this most difficult of times.
