Barbara Braithwaite, a founder member of Sotonia CC, passed away on Monday, 29th July. The funeral is on Thursday, 8th August, at 10:00am at the West Chapel, Southampton Crematorium.

Barbara was a lifelong cyclist, being a member of Solent & District RC., a constituent club when Sotonia CC was formed in the late 1960’s. She set a number of VTTA age standards for Vets. One still stands in the current VTTA Handbook, of a 1.:32.:45 for 25 miles at the age of 80.

She was also a keen cycle-tourist, and her exploits over the years would fill a book. She will be remembered for a long time.
