Yesterday our good friend and active member of Stafford Road Club Don Picken passed away quietly at home.
Don has been a member of Stafford Road Club for decades and anyone who rode Time Trial events would know Don well as from the late 90’s Don ran a full racing calendar of events from March to September each year and his wife and daughter were often there help him with the timekeeping.
I myself met Don in 2002 when I attended my first committee meeting and was encouraged by him to ride the club TT’s, and thanks to Don I found the Race of Truth to be the most thrilling (and demanding) cycling discipline which I am still passionate about today and love to race, thanks Don.
I will post details of the funeral arrangements once they have been confirmed
A familiar figure to many Don Picken signing on riders as the Stafford RC time trials
