Dave Lindsey (1939 – 2011) an appreciation
Dave collapsed and died on his way back from a CTC cycle run on Saturday 19 November. Dave was a stalwart of the cycle forum, helping set it up in 2003 and being co-chair until 2009. He was also ACF treasurer until earlier this year. Alongside his active role in ACF, he was CTC’s Right to Ride campaigner for Aberdeen, a role he held for many years. Indeed for a long time before ACF established itself, Dave was a lone voice on behalf of cyclists in the city.
We will remember the good humour he managed to maintain despite the ever present frustrations of cycle campaigning, together with his enthusiasm and dedication to cycling in all its forms. This dedication spurred him and Liz to spend many years volunteering in several primary schools, helping children achieve their cycling proficiency. Dave was always ready to attend meetings, to represent ACF and to volunteer ideas. He will be sorely missed.
Try Cycling on Saturday 17th December was to be lead by Dave – all are welcome to join us, beginners and experienced alike. Meet at Seaton Park [map] at 10:00hrs
