“….. according to the archives, when actual club kit was only worn by track cyclist and tweed was the order of the day on club rides, members turning up on Sundays without their brass blue/gold badges were fined tuppence by the Club Captain. Just one of the reasons why that little badge is printed on our club tops 😉”. Credit to Paul Martin, PNECC
