Wheels Along the Waveney: A history of the Godric Cycling Club, 1953–2003
Here is the story of the Godric Cycling Club. It was founded in 1953 by two idealists, George and Daphne King, who were soon joined by a group of enthusiastic teenagers. Based in the small and ancient town of Bungay, the club took delight in the exploration of the Waveney region while its racing members soon began to challenge for the high honours of cycle sport. This book explains how the Godric C.C. quickly became the most admired cycling club in East Anglia. It describes the varied fortunes of the club, its mixture of tradition and innovation, its unparalleled work for charity, and its place in the life and leisure of the Waveney Valley.
