 Rob Marcus
I'm very sad to report that Rob Marcus left us this morning after a very short and intense battle with cancer. 

Rob was a member of VCGH for many years (despite living on the outskirts of London) up until 2013 when he moved to Kingston Wheelers and afterwards to his current house in Northampton which he shared with his new wife Yvonne.

Those who knew him will know he was a devoted cycling purist who could easily quote gear inches and the advantages of bespoke steel frame-making. He was known to dabble (quite seriously) in the veteran road racing scene as well as TT, and had an unusual preference for riding his single speed on club rides to Bosham. 

His mischievous and irreverent sense of humour, his refreshing honesty, and his zest for cycling in all its forms will be sorely missed.

There will be no funeral but we are organising a Memorial Ride for Rob on 16th March from Wey Hill carpark in Haslemere to Bosham (more details on the calendar) so please sign up if you are intending to come along, so we can reserve enough space in the pub.
