LACK of entries for New Forest Cycling Club’s Boxing Day 10 on the Ringwood-Sopley course has led to the event being cancelled.
The number of people signing up to ride the open 10, which features fancy dress and festive prizes, has gradually been dwindling in recent years.
Last Christmas there were 40-or-so entries, but this year the number had nosedived to an unlucky 13, and after serious discussions between former event secretary Roger Bacon, club secretary Peter Weaver and this year’s organiser Maggie Bracher, the sad decision was made to cancel the event.
Further discussions will have to take place at committee level to decide whether to run it again on Boxing Day 2012.
