A CYCLIST who was killed in a hit and run in Bold Heath was remembered by a cycling club who raised hundreds of pounds in his memory.

Dad-of-three Terry Brown died after he was knocked down while cycling along Warrington Road, Bold Heath, on February 18, 2014.

Michael Rollason, of Wootton Street, Bedworth, who was the motorist responsible for the hit-and-run crash, was later jailed for seven years for causing death by dangerous driving.

To help keep Terry's legacy alive, North Cheshire Clarion Club held two long-distance cycle rides to support the Headway charity in his memory.

Cyclists travelled 100 miles and 125 miles through Cheshire and Shropshire taking in places with 'mere' in their name such as Delamere, Ellesmere and Mere.

The rides started and finished at the village of Lower Whitley.

Cycling club secretary Neil Shand, who works for Daresbury-based energy and environmental engineering specialist Operational UK, said: “Terry Brown was a member of North Cheshire Clarion Club, and was a popular and well-respected man.

“In holding the Mere-themed cycle rides, we wanted to support the Headway charity.

"It helped support Terry's family and does excellent work on all issues relating to brain injury, from helping victims' families to supporting professional and medical research.

“The two rides were well-supported with 130 cyclists taking part, both members and visitors.

"The rides raised £170 and the club then added more, making a total donation of £350 to Headway.”

North Cheshire Clarion Club holds a range of events including road and off-road cycling, road and track races and time trials.
