CTC member Caroline Waugh, who carried the Olympic torch, and CTC Cycling Development Officer Steve Marsden were invited by Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg to watch Paralympic cyclist Sarah Storey win Britain's first gold medal. Caroline, who is now used to the limelight, even managed to persuade Mr Clegg to promise to come along and watch a session of the disability cycling activities she assists with at Hillsborough in Sheffield. Disabled CTC member John Thraves thinks our Paralympic cyclists are inspirational. John, who had the lower part of his leg amputated due to diabetes, has just qualified as National Standard cycle instructor. He will be helping CTC deliver a one-day All Ability Cycle Leaders’ courseas part of a four-day National Standard Instructor course in St Austell, Cornwall from 29 September to 2 October.
