Ron Spencer joined Warrington Road Club in 1958 as a youngster and soon became one of the best Time Trial riders not only in the club, but soon enough the whole UK. Ron was National 12-hour champion in 1963 and second in the BBAR that year. Thirty years later, he was still clocking fast standards against the clock under the hour on the course you ride for this event until his untimely passing in 2011. Warrington Road Club dedicate this Time Trial to the memory of Ron Spencer, to our former President and an active part of the cycling community.
Many thanks for your entry in this event.
