John Lumbers 1929 - 2011

Cambridge CTC is very sad to hear of the death of John Lumbers. John was one of our leading members who had been associated with our club for as long as most of us can remember. John was a lifelong touring cyclist. He helped run the club for many years and led countless cycle rides both locally and all over the world. He led local rides for Cambridge CTC as recently as 2009. Our thoughts are with his family and particularly his wife Greta.

Funeral information

The funeral will be on Thursday 24th November at 11am at Hauxton Church.

The committal will take place at the church. Only the funeral directors will
accompany the coffin to the crematorium.

After the funeral, everyone is invited to a tea and coffee gathering at the
Red Lion pub in Grantchester.

Family flowers only. We understand there will be a collection for charity.

Greta has specifically asked for people to attend in cycling gear, so club members will be riding from Cambridge as follows:

Depart from Brookside at 10:00 am.
Pass front of railway station at 10:10am.
Ride via the busway cycleway, DNA path, Great and Little Shelfords, arriving at Hauxton at approx 10.45am.
After the funeral we will ride on to Grantchester.
If you plan to go to the Grantchester Red Lion gathering afterwards, it would be helpful if you let Rupert know (contact details here) so he can pass an estimate of numbers to the family.
