It is with regret we advise the death of Chis O’Connor who has passed away suddenly at home.

Chris was the son of legendary local cyclist Jack O’Connor who was one of the founding members of the club back in the 1950’s. Chris had become more involved in the club a few years ago and had become one of our regular timekeepers for the evening time trials and also promoted the clubs open 10 mile time trial, as well as helping out at other events.

He was also a supporter of the clubs team in the annual inter-club competition between Grantham, Sleaford, Newark and Lincoln which has been held since the early 1960s in memory of his father, also donating a trophy for a similar ladies event 3 years ago.

Chris was also well known for running a cycle shop on Watergate in Grantham for several years as well as some how having a regular job as well.

Our condolences to his family.
