MIKE DeBIDAPH- 13/02/1926 to 23/11/2023

It is with a very heavy heart that I have to tell you that our President and Friend, Mike DeBidaph, has passed away.

Although we knew this was coming it is still very sad. Mike passed away peacefuly in his sleep on Thursday 23rd November.

The funeral will be on Wednesday 13th December at Surrey & Sussex Crematorium, Balcombe Road, Crawley. RH10 3NQ at 3.45pm. All are welcome.

There will be a procession of bikes leaving from the house at 2.30pm. All bikes are welcome. If you need confirmation of the house address please email

If anyone would like to say something at the funeral service, this is welcomed by Sybil and the family. Again please email.

Our condolences to Sybil and all the family. A legend in the Indian world, who will be greatly missed. He gave a lot of people their introduction to the Indian world along with his friendship and help

RIP Mike.
