Tony Hadland has graciously agreed to be the Club’s new President.
Having written two definitive books about the Moulton Bicycle, he has an encyclopaedic knowledge about the machines we cherish and the UK bicycle industry in general.
Many Members will remember that Tony was the first Editor of The Moultoneer. He was Editor for three separate terms of office!
In his writings on the world of bicycling, has been a strong advocate of the Moulton philosophy.
He has been a central welcoming face at many past BoAs. His knowledge of Moulton bicycles was heavily relied upon by Alex Moulton at the Saturday afternoon courtyard gatherings where AM would talk about the many different models being shown by their owners.
Tony was the Master of Ceremonies at the 50th Anniversary of the launch of the Moulton Bicycle and also was nominated by Alex to give a eulogy about AM’s achievements in the bicycle world at his funeral.
As the Club moves into a new, post- AM, era, we look forward to a long and happy association with Tony.

With the heart of the city distant and buses infrequent it was my bicycle, a rusty Moulton AM5, which gave me my connection to this strange place. It was this bicycle that allowed me to truly discover Kyoto, far more than any other method of transportation.
