Old Frends

Many years ago my Dad got me into cycling, buying me a bicycle as a present for "passing the Eleven Plus exam"

Certain memories stand out for me such as going on cycle touring trips to North Wales, and racing up and down the Towi valley with him and the Carmarthen Wheelers cycling club.

My last visit to Wales saw me inherit his trusty steed the Holdsworth Mistral, which dates back to the same time roughly as I traded up to my Freddie Grubb Galibier bike somewhere c 1975.

We shall be going on some adventures together.
