It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of District Secretary for the South West and an ex-member of the National Committee, Ken Robertson. As many of you know Ken was an active participant in every aspect of the sport throughout his life. His passion for time trialling was pivotal in developing the sport over the many years he was involved in competing, organising and overseeing events.

Ken was the 10th longest serving member of the RTTC national committee having served for 21 years from 1981-2001.  He was always ready to join in the discussions around the meeting table, never afraid to say how he saw things but ready to listen to the point of view of others.  Never one to stand back from taking on any task, Ken was a great volunteer and was awarded his RTTC Gold badge for services to the organisation in 2001.  

Ken’s life revolved around cycling and his late wife Ann would often accompany him on his travels to meetings and events as well as being a great support at the numerous events he ran in the South West, including a number of RTTC National Championships


Ken will leave a big hole in the cycling fraternity, particularly in Mid-Devon CC the club of which he was a life long member but also across the wider world of cycling.
