It is with great sadness that we mourn the loss of Jocelyn Goodwin. So many of us have enjoyed riding with Jocelyn over the years that she has been involved in cycling in the Manawatu. We all have admired her strength and determination on the bike.
Jocelyn was heading out on her regular Sunday morning ride and was tragically hit by a truck on Summerhill Drive.
Jocelyn has been a competitive member of Bike Manawatu and prior to Bike Manawatu of PN Marist Cycling Club. She was an excellent time trialist and was a regular participant in Wednesday night time trials at Kairanga. She is the current holder of the Pirie Cup for masters women time trial which she has won numerous times. She was a regular competitor at Club Nationals winning the silver medal in the Masters4 Time Trial in 2012. In 2011, as a Master3, she had an excellent year winning bronze in the time trial and silver in the road race. She competed in the WCNI team time trial event last year with Sue McMaster where they won silver.
Jocelyn helped organise the first Bike Manawatu awards dinner in 2012.
She competed at Masters games in Wanganui and always won a medal in the masters time trial. She had also tried track cycling at Johnstone Park in Feilding.
She lead a very full life and also enjoyed swimming, was a keen member of her book club, did Pilates each week and was a very highly regarded teacher.
She was a wonderful wife, mother and friend and our thoughts and prayers go to Garry and family.
