SOME club names resonate more than others, like the North Bucks Road Club for instance.
The achievements of that father and son duo, Goz and Dick Goodman put the spotlight on North Bucks.
Their exploits in the amatuer and pro ranks and those of many others are recorded for posterity in a book entitled, The North Bucks Road Club, cycling through the first 50 years.
Author Derek Taylor devotes two pages ? and when necessary, more ? in detailing many of the club members activities year by year from 1952 up to and including 2002.
It?s not a complete record, that would take a book too heavy to lift, he says!
Full of anecdotes and stories recalled by members across five decades, the book provides an excellent snap shot of a club which continues to play a vibrant part in the sport and pastime.
The foreword is by time trialling star Eddie Adkins.
