Clive Drury, a Life Member of the Wolverhampton Wheelers will be sadly missed, a man of great kindness and consideration and never afraid of getting stuck in and doing his turn - no matter what the cause.
A racing cyclist with an envious pedigree, who many say could have made it alongside the World's best had he wished. Whatever Clive did he did it to the best of his ability and when that came to racing that meant he would never be satisfied with just riding to finish - Clive gave it his all.
He was also a very considerate rider going back to help those struggling to keep up on the Sunday club run - a trait typical of his character. He also possessed an active sense of humour which would often materialise on the bike - being so strong he was quite capable of riding away from the group who would chase frantically only to realise that Clive was sitting in behind having a chuckle to himself.... having stopped to hide when out of site and then joining in at the back of the chasers!
Clive enjoyed life and a glass or two of beer was always welcomed, especially when away with the lads on a bachelor week-end.... Unfortunately we are not allowed to elaborate further as there are still those about who could be incriminated by such revelations!
Clive and his wife Angela made a wonderful couple and the whole family have been loyal Wheelers ever since they met, our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with them all at this most testing of times.
Clive will be laid to rest at the Telford Crematorium, Redhill, Telford TF2 9JN on Thursday 29th November at 12.20 pm.
