With the aim of commemorating Berkhamsted’s most famous cyclist, the Club has commissioned our excellent local trophy centre, E.M.N Engravers (thanks Jon Paulin!), to produce the Thomas Stevens Award.
The Trophy above gives a bit of a clue regarding Thomas Stevens’ achievement. He was born in Berkhamsted (1854) and was the first person to circle the globe by bicycle on a penny farthing from 1884 to 1886.
The Award will be presented to the first claim rider who has achieved the best results in BCC colours over the last 12 months, as judged by the Club’s Performance Co-ordinator. Needless to say, members are now focusing attention on the Club’s last event – the hill climb on Tom’s Hill Road on 22 October 2016.
