The Cyclists' War Memorial in Meriden was erected after the First World War and ever since then, CTC members have met every year to remember cyclists who have died as a result of war. This week, the BBC has broadcast a feature about the memorial as part of the World War One at Home series.

Dispatches from Meriden - 22 May 2014 - Blog
An early train from London carried me to Meriden where I was welcomed by John Bennett, one of the weekend’s organisers, and a few other members of CTC’s Heart of England.

CTC members played a vital role in the battlefields of France as part of a cycling battalion. CTC's special free podcast looks at the contribution made by them and other cyclists during the Great War. Several annual CTC events take place to remember them and other fallen cyclists.
