Long-time Bathurst Cycling Club volunteer Elaine Ryan has been awarded the Dave Carroll Memorial Trophy at the club's awards night on Sunday, November 3.
The award, which was named after the late club member Dave Carroll who passed away in 2005, is awarded to a club member that has shown outstanding contribution or support to others.
Ryan had previously been secretary of the Bathurst Cycling Club, as well as working as a state commissaire and race director.
She's also received a Bathurst Cycling Club life membership, a Jean Alexander Award and Bathurst Living Legend status.
Club president Marian Renshaw said the award is a well deserved one for Ryan, considering her character.
She is a person who has given a lot back in terms of selflessness.Bathurst Cycling Club president Marian Renshaw on Elaine Ryan
"She is a person who has given a lot back in terms of selflessness," she said.
"Elaine has been at the club for 30 years. She's seen a lot of things happen, such as bringing forward women's racing in the 1980s."
She said the Dave Caroll Award is a prestigious one.
"I have been recipient in the past and it makes you proud to be a club member."
In 135 years of the Bathurst Cycling Club, no administrator has served longer as a executive than Ryan.
