Since its creation Stanmore Jafferys is well known to have made outstanding progress implementing sporting activities for the community by laying an outstanding foundation to how sports should be run and governed. Over the course of my life thus far I have been involved in various sports however since I started cycling two years ago I see greater value, interest within our community and impact potential to do good than any other sport today. Therefore with Allah's blessings, I am looking forward to expand on our current cycling foundations iA.
