Unfortunately, we’ve had to cancel this years Keith Butler Handicap Champs due to not having enough British Cycling accredited marshals for the Loxwood course. Other venues were considered, then dismissed for various reasons. We will look to host this race next year.
What: Keith Butler Handicap Championships Surrey League Road race
When: Sunday September 11
Where: Loxwood area
The club needs your help to run the Surrey League championships this September, a race now named after former member Keith Butler. For those who didn’t know Keith, he was a life long member of the Paragon and started the Surrey Cycle Racing league in the 1980s.
He won both the British professional and amateur road race titles in the 1960s (the first rider to ever win both titles) and represented Great Britain at the 1965 road world championships. He was also a good friend to everyone at the Paragon. His father Stan was a member, as was his son and daughter Gethin and Alison (who both rode internationally.)
Keith and his family were pillars of the club and so it’s important that we put on a great event that carries his name.
We need 16 members to help the Surrey League put this event on, doing things from marshalling to driving and making the teas at the HQ. Please block out this day in your diary, we’ll be in touch soon to give more details.
