In its twelth year this year, this event is held in memory of Dave Peck who died in a cycling accident in 2011. The event has been held every year since then barring 2020 and 2021 due to COVID.
Dave was not only a very popular Chairman for Twickenham CC but was an avid supporter of road racing and particularly this event. We at Twickenham CC are pleased to continue to run this event in his honour.
