Vale Arthur Donnelly who died this morning. Arthur was 85 and a long-time member of DHBC. He was a NSW State Commissaire and had been officiating out at Dunc Gray on the weekend for the Metro Champs. Arthur was also a life member of Cycling NSW.

Last night Arthur was down at Tempe Velodrome, as he always was on a Monday and Wednesday night, watching over DHBC training, sitting on his chair up near the sign-on sheets.

Farewell Arthur. Details to come.
