The C.A.Rhodes Memorial for 2013 is to be made to Bob Howden in recognition of his outstanding service to the furtherance of cycling both in Yorkshire and nationally, including his recent election as President of British Cycling.
The memorial was instigated in 1961 as a tribute to the memory of Charles Arthur Rhodes (1895-1961) doyen of the Yorkshire Road Club, co-founder in 1932 of the Yorkshire Cycling Federation and a nationally recognised timekeeper and administrator. The Award is regarded as the greatest distinction Yorkshire Cycling can bestow.
A copy of the citation is available here.
The award will be presented at the annual Yorkshire Cycling Federation luncheon on the 23rd February 2014.
