As announced during the AGM on Thursday night – in October 2022 the Club was advised of the passing of long time member Alec Mallett, aged 55 years.
Alec was born in 1967 and attended Hartwell Primary, Swinburne Junior Community School, Camberwell High and Box Hill High. Upon completing his Bachelor of Commerce degree at Deakin University he travelled to London working as an accountant, returning home a few years later.
He had the travel bug and travelled extensively. He loved taking photos of his travels.
In one of his resumes, he described himself as being a globe-trotting cyclist. He combined his lifelong passions of cycling, photography and travel to perfection.
Throughout his life he suffered ill health and sadly died suddenly at home in September 2022, succumbing to his heart condition.

Alec remembered the Club is his Will and once probate was granted earlier this year the Club received, in July, a major bequest from Alec’s estate of $127,000 for the Club to apply as it sees fit.
The Board will be looking to work with members as to how best to apply these funds to the Club to provide a lasting legacy of Alec’s generosity.
If you have any memories or photos of Alec during his time with the Club, the Board would like to hear from you. Please contact the Secretary to contribute to a Tribute page which will be setup on the website.
