Diss Cycling Club Celebrates 75 Years In The Saddle

We celebrated our 75th anniversary with a set of special events on 25th May 2014. Founded in 1939 by local cycling enthusiasts, Diss Cycling Club organised two cycle rides, one 75 miles long and the other 75 kilometres long, to celebrate the milestone.
Both cycle rides met up at Breckland Lodge outside Attleborough which was the destination for the first ever club ride back in 1939. Louise Wain, assistant manager at Breckland Lodge, said “It was great to see so many of the club members here today and we were delighted to provide a specially decorated cake to mark the occasion.”

Club riders in 1939

Some of the first club members in 1939 including Eric Madgett, second from the left, whose son Mick Madgett is still an active club member today and runs Madgetts Cycles in Diss.

Ken Joliffe, chairman of club, speaking at the barbecue after the rides returned to Diss said “Through the years, Diss Cycling Club has had many successes and it is tremendous to have so many people come along today to help us celebrate. We have friends here who have been cycling for over 50 years, cycling alongside some of our younger riders like Richard Dunnett, Phil Coy and Tom Fitzpatrick who compete at a national and international level. More than anything though, Diss Cycling Club is about helping everyone enjoy the sport and we’ve seen today how lucky we are to be able to ride in the beautiful Norfolk and Suffolk countryside around Diss.”
Ex club member Lenny Green, 83, recalled how he joined the club in 1947 and competed in Time Trials and other club events. He particularly recalled cycling back from a club event in the early 50s without a rear light and being caught by a policeman. “I was fined 15s and sent home with a flea in my ear.” said Lenny “I was only an apprentice so that was nearly a week’s wages for me the time.”
