NFCC have a series of awards which are handed out at the end of each season, where applicable, to reward Members for a number of achievements throughout the season. Over the years, the quantity of awards and trophies have grown in size so this list is to serve as a record of the reason for their award, and a record of previous winners.
Awarded to the club champion, points awarded for the first five in each of a nominated set of events at the start of the season and indicated on the club calendar. All nominated events will count 5 points allocated to first down to 1 for fifth.
Awarded for the fastest average speed in combined 10,15 and 25 mile events in the season, the short distance BAR. Originally presented by a local female justice of the peace.
|Year||Name||Average Speed (MPH)|
Awarded for the fastest ride ‘around the forest’ in the season. This is now based solely on the NFCC P333 open event, or variation of such should it be shortened due to weather/roadworks.
Douglas Edwin (Ted) Joyce was a founder member of the club, who died in an accident in November 1938.
The award was originally for the full distance of 68 miles, done at any time of year with a time keeper. That course became too busy in sections, or otherwise impossible on a bicycle. Since 2007 it has been awarded for completion of the P333 open TT held by the club over varying courses, due to road works and shortened courses; marked * where known.
