Since the clubs inception in 1999 we have received the support of numerous sponsors who have generously contributed to the club's development. Many were founding club members or otherwise had an interest in the club or the development of the sport of cycling. Whilst they may no longer be sponsors we'd like to acknowledge and remember the support we received in those first formative 10 years for which we remain very grateful.
