Meet our award-winning and inspirational CTC members

CTC members from across the UK came together at the Annual Dinner and Prizegiving in Glasgow to celebrate the amazing achievements of the army of volunteers who give time to support CTC and encourage more cycling.

Every year, CTC members and local groups nominate the cyclists who have done the most to encourage and support cycling. The awards give the volunteers the recognition they deserve and highlight some of the ways CTC members are changing people's lives.

On Saturday 10 May 2014, the winners of the CTC Awards were announced in Glasgow at the CTC Annual Dinner and Prizegiving.

Winner of the Arthur Moss Medallion and CTC Volunteer of the Year for the North West Region – Glynis Francis

Glynis Francis is a World Champion, a grandma and an inspiration to hundreds of Manchester women. Her ground-breaking cycling network for women, Team Glow, has attracted a steady stream of women – some of whom had not picked up a bike for decades – and turned them into accomplished cyclists.

Glynis's own personal achievement of reclaiming her gold medal from 2002 to become Sprint Champion at the World Masters Track Championships held at Manchester Velodrome in October 2013 is the pinnacle of Team Glow's success, and her speed of 43.5kmh / 27 mph has won her the accolade of the “Fastest Grandma in the World”!

In an era when cycling’s popularity has soared, Glynis has been working doggedly behind the scenes to bring more women into this traditionally male-dominated sport.

Winner of the Arthur Moss Award and Volunteer of the Year for Wales – Lowri Evans

Lowri Evans accepting her Award
‘Cheerful, friendly and efficient’ - that is how Lowri Evans is described by those that nominated her. Her character is a great advantage in the management of all the events that she organises, and in the other duties that she has undertaken.

She is closely involved with the Wrexham Reivers Riding group, is the Secretary of the Chester and North Wales Member Group and acts as the Liaison Officer with CTC Cymru.

As a keen member of the Chester and North Wales team in the CTC Touring Competition, she has won the Ladies' Prize for several years in succession, and has enabled them, yet again, to win the Team Prize for 2012.
