===============================================================

It is with regret that we advise the untimely death of club member Rob Johnson from cancer. Rob was born in July 1963 and has mixed riding his bike with running his own successful building business in the Grantham area. He is first mentioned on the club role of honour winning the Most Improved Rider and sharing the League 10 award in 1986. In 1994 he won the club 100 mile and 12 hour awards and then in 2007 the 30 and 50 miles.

In recent years Rob has competed in the Velo 99 road race series and has undertaken various ‘Raids’ on the continent as part of a club group. In 2015 a 5 days ride across the Pyrenees, in 2016 another 5 days across the Alps and then in 2018 one of the toughest challenge rides, 9 days across the Dolomites from Lake Geneva to Trieste, including the climb of the mighty Stelvio. Rob was always cheerful no matter what the conditions threw at us and will be missed by all who knew him. Our condolences to his family.
