Scottish Cycling deeply saddened by the loss of Peter Clark


Peter Clark, 26th June 1956 - 2nd July 2016

It is with great sadness that we give the news that our great friend and colleague Peter Clark sadly passed away at the weekend after suffering a heart attack. Peter was the Scottish Cycling Regional Development Officer for the North East region and his sudden death has touched all of our hearts.

Peter was a truly great individual who inspired so many people and will be sadly missed by everyone who knew him. He contributed so much to Cycling, far beyond what his position required, always carrying out his duties with endless enthusiasm, drive and a wicked sense of humour! In addition to being Regional Development Officer he was a Commissaire, Event Organiser, Coach, Mentor and Team Manager among others. His incredible knowledge and experience of Cycling was always shared willingly; providing help and support to anyone that asked. His passion for the sport he loved so much was truly infectious.

Our thoughts go out to Peter's family and friends at this difficult time.

Funeral arrangements below:

Funeral service to be held at 1:15pm at the West Chapel of Aberdeen Crematorium on Wednesday 13 July 2016. Cyclists in club strips & lycra welcomed/encouraged.
