Ros Spencer

August – Volunteer In Focus

Delighted to announce Ros Spencer as our Volunteer Of the Month

Ros has been a part of Poole Wheelers Cycling Club for over 55 years in many different roles. She has been an ever-present timekeeper in the weekly TT’s and helped support countless riders over the years. In this time, Ros has helped organise successful national events held by the club and supported countless other cycling clubs in the region, being a timekeeper for their open events too.

If you’ve competed in an open TT in South Dorset, you can bet that Ros would have been the timekeeper. In 2021 she set off and time kept for the local 50 mile open TT, as well as being the timekeeper for the local 10 and 25 mile time trials. When the Time trial season ends, her support continues throughout winter, supporting the club’s Wednesday evening rides and making sure the club continues to operate smoothly.

“She is the backbone of our club, without her help the club would not have achieved the success it has to date.” (Poole Wheelers current member)

“Ros is a truly amazing lady… I have not been a member since the late 80s /early 90s but not at all surprised to see the heart of the club is still Ros” (Poole Wheelers past member)

“A friendly face in the club she has helped encourage countless riders through the year into racing and cycling. Without Ros, Poole Wheelers would not be the successful well-known club it is today.” (Poole Wheelers current volunteer & member)

Ros’s commitment to local cycling is incredible and no doubt everyone she has come across will join us to say a HUGE thank you!
