Forres Cycling Club has been part of the Forres community since 1938 and was founded by:
J Laurie, G McDounough, J Smith, A Fraser, J McCook, J Urquhart, J Stuart, G Forbes, J Stewart, J Gray, J Campbell, J Jameson, H Younie, Miss E Young, Miss K Reid and Miss G MacKenzie.
All of whom enjoyed cycling and decided they would prefer to do it as a group. Although initially formed as a Touring Club it wasn’t long before some of the members decided to dabble in racing: Road Races, Time Trials and Grass Track.
One of our most outstanding members was William (Bill) Stuart who was the first recipient of the Scottish Cyclists’ Union Gold Badge of Honour for Services to Cycling.
In 1972 we purchased a plot of land in Cumming Street, Forres and built our own Clubrooms. Making us one of the first if not the first club in Scotland to own their clubrooms.
One of our present members was Scottish 25 Mile Time Trial Champion and Record holder and won several Gold, Silver and Bronze Scottish Championship Medals for various events in his youth. In the last few years he has won Gold, Silver and Bronze in his age group at the British and World Masters Track Championships. Quite an achievement as he is now 70+.
This year see the Club celebrate it’s 75th anniversary.
Thanks for visiting and we look forward to seeing you down the road.
