Jocelyn Goodwin Memorial Ride


Saturday 21 June 2014

With the blessing of Garry Wadsworth and the family, Bike Manawatu is going to host a memorial ride for Jocelyn Goodwin who was killed on the 6th of April while on a training ride in Palmerston North.

Many of us knew Jocelyn but she was never one to make a big deal of what she achieved on a bike. Her real achievements on a bike and elsewhere in life only came to be more widely known after the accident and they were a testament to the kind of person she was.

Many of us quickly realised how passionate she was about cycling and her willingness to contribute elsewhere in the club by administratively supporting events was greatly appreciated. She will be sadly missed. It is therefore fitting that we remember Jocelyn by organising a memorial ride in her honour.
