Tim Wainwright’s bikes for sale

Especially if you audaxed, you would have known long-time Willesden member Tim Wainwright. Tim sadly died in March 2017, and now his wife Pauline, herself a cyclist, is putting his bikes up for sale.

His audaxing career started in the late 80s and he died as the result of a colliding with a parked van when out on his bike. He rode in most major audax events and had a host of audax palmares. When he wasn’t riding himself, he was expertly photographing events. He managed to make time to edit one edition each year of Arrivee, Audax UK’s magazine. He was also a thoroughly likeable man.
