Bob Maitland and Les Scales in, probably, 1953. It looks as if Maitland could do with a couple of links less chain! Click on photo to enlarge.

Pretty sure this is the Worlds with Rik Van Steenbergen second. I at first thought the little guy in white was Dave Bedwell  but now think not. Is the rider behind him a Brit?

coach trip

Ron “Jock” Jowers recently sent this photo to Gino Goddard without any explanation. That is Ron second from right, front row but Gino doesn’t recognise anybody besides Ron. If you were enjoying club life sixty years ago and are featured please fill in the blanks by posting a comment. (Right click on photo to enlarge).

Brian Pearson R.I.P.

Brian Pearson R.I.P.

Sad to learn of the death of Brian Pearson a well known Merseyside road racer from the fifties and sixties. He was a member of the North Wirral Velo and latterly, I think, the Mersey Roads Club.
In this photo taken apparently at the Tour of the Lakes two day Brian is leading and in third place is Jacky Lowe Southport RCC who won an edition of the race.

Bracky1949This photo is endorsed Esoteric TTT 1949. I am a little disappointed that Bracky didn’t bother to remove his mudguards. Note the single roller gear.

Mary Dawson in 1954

Check out the clearance on her Raleigh "track" bike! No foreign stuff here, Airlite hubs and a Williams chainset.
