Recognising the Efforts of Our Volunteers

No good deed goes unnoticed, and that is certainly the case of some of our most committed and dedicated volunteers who have been given awards by British Cycling,  the Prime Minister’s Office, the London Mayor’s Sports Awards – to name but a few. The time and effort taken to run and manage Slipstreamers is immense, as is the energy passion and enthusiasm of those who do so willingly; and so we are very proud to show off their successes!
