President (2018-)

Alastair Semple

Our new club President Alastair Semple was voted in at the AGM held on 16/10/2018.  Alastair has been a long standing member of the club and has over the years given back a huge amount to the club, whether in the form of a place on the committee (as Chairman), organising Open time trials, coaching winter training sessions, or just giving up his time to help out at numerous club events.

President (-2018)

Reg Pearce

On the 27th May our long standing president Reg Pearce sadly passed away at the age of 87.

He was a huge part of the history of Stafford Road Club and will be sadly missed.  Known as the lynchpin of the cycling world within Stafford, Reg would often be found out on club group rides, spending much of his life doing what he loved – cycling.  Over the years Reg held many club cycling records including the 24 hour time trial, set back in 1960 with an incredible 411.43 miles, a record which still stands today.

A kind hearted, generous man, he will undoubtedly continue to inspire many more cyclists with the love he had for our sport.
