Kilt Alert!

The Addiscombe Cycling Club celebrated its 80th annual dinner and prize presentation last Saturday. We had loads of winners to cheer, and great news, David Weir MBE had kindly agreed to be our after dinner guest.
The dinner was a sell out and a packed room was extremely keen to quiz David on his career.

David’s question and answer session after dinner covered everything from his favourite wheel manufacturer, through his training regime, to how he feels disabled athletes are treated within sport and by the general public. He then kindly agreed to assist Joyce Smith, the club President, with the prize giving.

David did a fantastic job for us. He answered every question put to him with enthusiasm. He’s a great ambassador for his sport and clearly someone with a real passion to succeed. We were delighted that he agreed to help with the prize presentation; that meant a lot to all our winners.
The post dinner drinks went on long into the night, great company, a great event and loads of laughs too.
My mate Sylv took some great photos on the night and you can have a look at them here
Cheers! Snoop
