The Way of the Roses

We lost our good friend, riding companion and club Treasurer, Bernard Pope just over a year ago. Bernard made things happen. He introduced us to new cafes. He took us on the Arts ride, an unforgettable tour of the public artworks of Chesterfield and the surrounding area. He rode the End to End when he was not in the best of health and in his final months he was giving thought to another venture, The Way of the Roses. This ride is a tribute to Bernard.

Eleven riders are participating in the tour which starts on Monday 25 September with support from Sheila Johnson.
