cycling in Surrey, Sussex, Hampshire and beyond…..

email (17 Feb 2015) from Jacqui Rolfe

Sorting through my overflowing inbox I came across this and realised that I should have blogged it at the time.  Mea culpa!

Can you please pass on my thanks to you and the other cyclists who came to the funeral last Friday for the lovely comments everyone wrote in the book of condolence. I didn’t have any time or opportunity to meet with you as I was surrounded with so many people who had come to remember him and pay their respects .

I would have liked to meet you as he often spoke of you all and he enjoyed riding with your group for nearly 10 years as he got his 10 year CTC certificate at Xmas before moving to Poole last March.

I did meet several members in France a few years ago when he did the Semaine Federal and indeed we did our second one together last year on our new Roberts tandem. Unfortunately I don’t know how I will ride it now he has gone and he has a garage full of his bikes which I need to get valued for his estate.

Once again please pass on my thanks to everyone and if you have any thoughts on bikes or indeed any nice stories you have of Barry I would be grateful to hear them. I still can’t believe he is gone as he was so full of life and it was totally unexpected. The only consolation is he died happy without pain and doing what he loved doing and he would never have wanted to be ill or a burden on anyone.

Regards

Jacqui Rolfe
