Hilda Fox

Postby eileithyia » 27 Jan 2019, 12:24pm

Hilda Fox was one of those 'old school' cyclists, a member of Dukinfield CC, involved in women's cycling racing including a 3rd medal in the 1958 women's national 100 championship, a member of the Manchester Ladies CA, a lifelong cyclist, tourist and member of RSf. Sadly Hilda passed away on Thursday at the grand age of 94, rest in peace Hilda.
