The club has lost a good friend and the cycling fraternity has lost a great role model in his passing.
I personally did not know Clive for a long time but he certainly made a large impression on me with his sense of fun and his willingness to befriend those with whom he came into contact.
I remember him coming to my aid after a crash in the 2013 National Road Race and his ability both to calm me and to help me get the correct perspective through humour.
I will surely miss his laughter, his sense of fun, his ability to tease, but most of all his willing to do anything for his friends.
Rest in Peace good friend.
