Dave Lewis RIP

Postby Kevin Mayne » 20 Jan 2013, 11:58am

Sorry if this has been posted elsewhere. I have just heard that David Lewis - brilliant Audax rider and organiser, campaigner and all round good bloke has passed away. I didn't even know he was ill so this was quite a shock.

When I lived in Cardiff (now 12 years ago) Dave was everywhere, chairing the campaign group, running and riding events and generally being a completely generous guy.

Hell of a rider too - amassing huge distances and loving climbing.

His events - Trefil Travail, Glamorgan Glory, Down the British took me to roads that became some of my all time favourites.

Funeral details on AUK http://www.aukweb.net/ and more about Dave in his own words on http://www.ukcyclist.org.uk/david-lewis/314-david-lewis

A sad loss

such sad news. I'd only met him a few times but riding with Cardiff CTC Wednesday night group felt I knew him better through hearing so many tales.

Sorry to hear this. I never met him, but when I was a regular Audax rider his name was well known as an organiser.
